Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series Michelle Parker Event

Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series Michelle Parker

  • Location: Palisades Tahoe Olympic Valley Events Center
  • Starts: 6:00 PM
  • Ends: 8:30 PM

Michelle Parker, a prominent figure in freeskiing, has spent two decades pushing the boundaries of the sport. Known for her versatility and big mountain prowess, she's appeared in numerous ski films and won accolades. However, in 2022, as she was about to release the Red Bull Continuum film project, her father's dementia diagnosis shifted her priorities. She became a part-time caregiver, offering her a new perspective on life's fragility. In her show, "A Shift In Perspective," Michelle shares her emotional journey and how this change helped her succeed on a challenging Alaskan ski expedition. This Winter Speaker Series event supports TAMBA, a nonprofit dedicated to trail advocacy and maintenance in the Tahoe area. The event is also expanding to Mammoth Lakes for an in-person screening, promising an exciting evening with raffles, drinks, and inspiring stories.
