Special Guest – Michelle Salt – first Female Canadian Paralympic Snowboarder | @MichelleSaltCGY

Michelle Salt has always been a strong person but in June, 2011, she faced her most challenging test of strength when she was in a life threatening Motorcycle accident. Michelle knew she had some tough times ahead of her but instead of sinking into a dark place, she chose to see the opportunity in her tragedy. Within 8 months, Michelle got back on her snowboard and in March, 2014, Michelle became the First Female Canadian Paralympic Snowboarder. Michelle has since won 16 World Cup medals and recently finished 4th and 5th in her second Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang
