The Pretty Faces Teaser Trailer Just Dropped

11 0 1363

Being a snow obsessed mountain fiend of the female variety, I’ve spent the majority of the last 20 years consistently disappointed that the action sports scene is dominated by a single gender. Don’t get me wrong, most of my skiing hero’s have been men, including Shane McConkey, Seth Morrison, Doug Coombs, and others. But I’ve also been largely influenced and have proudly looked-up to Wendy Fisher, Ingrid Backstrom, and the incredible and larger than life Sarah Burke. Watching these women during my teenage years and during my early 20′s reminded me that there are chicks out there that just absolutely rip! In the photoshopped-glossy-magazine-world where we live, it’s important for girls growing up to know that they can go as big as the boys and follow their athletic passions as far as they want.   Having more female athletes on film and in the media can only help inspire and push young girls to open doors they didn’t know were possible. That’s why I’m SUPER stoked on Pretty Faces!

About the Pretty Faces film project:

“Pretty Faces is a film celebrating women who thrive in the snow. The concept for the film was originated by professional big mountain skier and SheJumps co-founder, Lynsey Dyer with the objective of giving women and girls, young and old, a source of inspiration through a unique look at what is possible when boundaries are broken, dreams captured and friendships cultivated. In Lynsey’s words “I wanted to give young girls something positive to look up to…I wanted to give them their Blizzard of Ahhs, Ski Movie or High Life, but done in a way that also shows the elegance, grace, community and style that is unique to women in the mountains.”

Young girls need more positive role models to offer then an alternative to the world of skinny jeans, reality TV and fashion magazines. We aim to provide a positive source of inspiration for young girls first and foremost. The lessons learned on the mountain parallel those learned by many women who take the path less traveled. Our documentary ski film (Pretty Faces) will showcase women walking that path to deliver the message “If she can do it, then so can I.””
