We are more than just pretty faces. We are women who shred and love spending time in the mountains. Lynsey Dyer’s Pretty Faces: The Story of a Skier Girl movie set to accomplish just that and it did. In typical ski movie fashion we saw helicopters, Alaska and park scenes. But the athletes were all women; they featured the East Coast shredders Louise Lintilhac and Paige Fitzgerald and kids alongside pro skiers. It held a little bit of everything through telling the story that women are here to take a stand and prove that we are here to stay and shred too.
These are the empowered women the ones who work hard and fight for what they believe in- the pursuit of happiness through shredding in the mountains. The story showed how hard everyone works for the winters from bar tending to commercial fishing all of these women work hard in the pursuit of snow and winter.
Showing to a sold out, standing room only crowd at the Boulder Theater girls, moms, dads, friends and family gathered for a magical evening filed with unicorn costumes and fancy dresses. There was a buzz in the air that you normally do experience while- at a ski movie, I am still trying to figure it out but the excitement was invigorating filling any person in the room with hope, joy and a sense of adventure knowing that it doesn’t matter whether you are male or female, you can do whatever you want in life and these women and the Pretty Faces movie showed that to be true.
