In front of a standing-room only audience in Boulder, Colorado, on Tuesday, big mountain skier Lynsey Dyer fueled feminine ski stoke with the premiere of her all-female film Pretty Faces: The Story of a SkierGirl. The film didn’t just light a match, it burned down the house, eliciting elated cheers from women who were fired up to celebrate the power of double-x chromosomes nailing double-diamond+ terrain. If the exuberant crowd is any indication, then this flick feeds a hunger that’s been gnawing at the guts of women for years.
I had the pleasure of attending the premiere and writing a review of the film, which I loved. When I shared the review with Lynsey, she said, “You are the first one who really got it! Thank you so much for truly seeing what the project is.”
