Pro skier and co-founder of  S.A.F.E. A.S. Clinics, Michelle Parker, got the National Geographic treatment and it turned out amazing. Loving what she’s doing to keep women safe in the mountains. Here is a bit more about the program she co-founded:

S.A.F.E. A.S. Clinics is a women’s tailored, beginner to experienced friendly, avalanche awareness and safety clinic. Founded by Elyse Saugstad, Jackie Paaso, Michelle Parker, Ingrid Backstrom, Lel Tone and Sherry McConkey with the intention to foster an open, welcoming and enthusiastic environment by which to encourage participation and communication to play in the mountains during the winter safely. Partial proceeds from the events are donated to snow community non-profits.”
