Olympic Valley, CA
Professional Skier, Mountain Biker, Climber
Michelle Parker grew up in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and began skiing before she was two years old. Today, Michelle focuses her ski efforts on big mountain freeskiing and is arguably the most watched female freeskier in the world. Michelle has filmed for every major ski production company including co-producing her own movie which won Best Short in 2020. She has been rewarded for her hard work with many awards and honors over the years including three times winner of the iF3 festival for best female segment and two times winner of the Powder Video Awards for best female segment.
Michelle’s interests go beyond skiing to more intimately learning about the mountains. She is the co-founder and instructor of SAFE AS Clinics which aim to reach and teach as many as possible about avalanche awareness and backcountry safety.
Outside of her athletic pursuits, Parker is a philanthropic at heart dedicating hours to local and national non-profits. And, she seems to find a few extra minutes to play the guitar, inspire young athletes, and take care of her own wellness. Michelle said to us. “I’ve been approached by many wellness companies, but I never was really sold on the products, until KAMU. Every KAMU product I’ve used tastes great and actually provides measurable results. I’m really excited to be a partner with KAMU!”
