Featured Speaker

Michelle Blaydon

Michelle Blaydon

After a long international career as a swimmer and professional triathlete Michelle moved into the world of adventure racing in 2000 and has been competing at an international level ever since. After taking part in the World Championships in 2000 in the beautiful province of Lijang, China, Michelle became hooked on adventure travel. In recent years Michelle has spent more time focusing on her other passion of ski mountaineering and ski adventure as she looks to challenge herself and further explore the mountains she loves. Balancing a hectic career in marketing, Michelle spends much of her spare time in the Alps where she can be found skiing, touring and climbing some of the beautiful steep peaks of the Chamonix valley in France.
