MICHAELA DAVIS MEEHAN

Join Mountainwatch for a once in a lifetime coaching experience around the spectacular Thredbo resort and backcountry, with Australian snowboarder and Freeride World Tour athlete, Michaela Davis-Meehan! The Ladies Discover Freeride Weekend, in partnership with The North Face, will provide you with expert tips and tricks so you can put your best foot forward in the open women’s Thredbo Snow Series – Freeride event on August 16.

This three-day small group snowboarding experience will take place from 14 – 16 August 2021, and will see you carve out unique lines around the Thredbo resort and backcountry with Michaela coaching you along the way. And, with a professional videographer in tow, you can have it all captured on film to take home and share with family and friends.

Day 1 (August 14) – Resort 

Spend the day with Michaela at one of Thredbo’s most favoured runs, and the location of the Thredbo Snow Series – Freeride event, “The Bluff”. Michaela will teach you everything the judges are looking for, from technique to jumps, control and fluidity! Put everything into practise throughout the day, all while you’re having an epic time sending big drops and slashing the wave and wind lips. 

Day 2 (August 15) – Backcountry 

Hike out to one of Australia’s most iconic backcountry lines, Thredbo’s Signature Hill, and spend the day pushing your snowboarding skills to the limit on challenging terrain. Build on the skills you learnt the day before, with expert coaching and pointers from Michaela on riding more technical backcountry lines. Leave feeling amped for the competition the next day!

Day 3 (August 16) – Event

It’s event day! Michaela will be there with you to give you some final pointers before you head off to carve some of the most insane lines of your life. Good luck!

After years of competing in the slopestyle discipline, Michaela turned to freeride competitions, competing on the Freeride Qualifier Tour three times, and taking out second place in the 2020 Freeride World Tour.
