Michaela Davis - Meehan
We first met Michaela when she booked on an avalanche course in 2014.
Since then Michaela has won the Freeride World Qualifier Tour for 2019. Winning the FWQ has secured Michaela a spot on the elite Freeride World Tour (FWT) in 2020, making her one of six female
snowboarders and the only Australian athlete (ski or snowboard) to
compete in this extreme event.
Despite her achievements, Michaela’s road to success hasn’t been
easy. A potentially career ending accident resulted in a broken back
in 2010 when she was competing in an elite slopestyle event in
Mammoth, California. This required two grueling surgeries, and
intensive rehab to be able to compete at the highest level again.
With determination, bravery and resilience, Michaela fought her way
back to be selected for the Australian Olympic Shadow team and
compete in the World Championships in Slopestyle.
She later switched her focus to filming (Persian Powder) and to
freeride. After a year off with a knee reconstruction in 2017/18,
Michaela went on to have her best ever year in international
competition, winning the FWQ and her spot in the professional FWT
Michaela will be hosting alongside Snow Safety Australia a "Women in the Backcountry" Avalanche course in Jindabyne this year and we will continue to support her on her path to becoming the FWT for 2020.
