Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series

Michelle Parker’s A Shift in Perspective

Palisades Tahoe Olympic Village Events Center


Event Details

Join TAMBA at Palisades Tahoe’s Olympic Village Events Center on November 30th to celebrate the first event in Alpenglow Sports’ Winter Speaker Series. Local freeskiing legend Michelle Parker will kick off the 18th annual Alpenglow Winter Speaker Series with her show A Shift in Perspective. The show, which documents her father’s battle with dementia and Parkinson’s, chronicles Parker’s effort to balance a life of caregiving and professional skiing. Parker, one of the ski industry’s most versatile female skiers, has appeared in over a dozen ski films and in 2013, won Best Female Performance at the Powder Video Awards and at the International Freeski Film Festival for her segment in Matchstick Productions’ Superheroes of Stoke.

This new experience gifted one of the darlings of the ski industry a new perspective on the fragility of life. In her show, Parker will take us on an emotional journey that illustrates how time spent with her father was life’s biggest gift yet, and how this new perspective helped her succeed on a recent big mountain Alaskan ski expedition from the spring of 2023.

We’re delighted to announce that TAMBA has been selected as the non-profit beneficiary for this event! Proceeds from the event will be donated to TAMBA to support our mission to build, maintain, and advocate for multi-use trails in the Tahoe Basin.

This event is FREE to attend! Come learn more about Michelle’s inspirational story and enjoy food, drinks, and an awesome prize giveaway.
