Hailing from the remote and snowy island of Newfoundland; Michaela believes in the importance of untouched wilderness and untouched powder. An environmentalist by osmosis and endurance athlete by choice, Michaela spent her formative years deep in backcountry fjords, remote mountains and salty bays that comprise her backyard. She finds the greatest form of happiness skiing deep backcountry snow, even on the uptrack! Michaela has spent the past several years exploring human propelled travel in a full time way, by ski mountaineering in Alaska, running ultramarathons through the arctic, desert and mountains trails of the US, and bike packing through South America. These days you’ll find her living in her van-home, working as a Ski Patroller and skiing as much of Canada’s backcountry as she can!
This is Mic’s best friend, Greta! Backcountry Skiing is her jam too!
Michaela has been running 100+ mile ultramarathons for the past 5 years and is proud to say she still has all her toenails.
