Born in 1987 in Truckee, California, Michelle began ski racing at her home resort of Squaw Valley at an early age, but by her mid-teens realized her passion was in freeskiing. After competing for a few years in slopestyle and halfpipe at the X Games and U.S. Open, she took on big mountain terrain, taking her park tricks to the backcountry.
