All Women Ski & Adventure Sports Film, “Pretty Faces” at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe
Lynsey Dyer, a premier big mountain freeskier, is the vision — and star — behind the first-ever crowd-sourced, crowd-funded all-women’s ski movie, “Pretty Faces.”
“We are on a mission to make skiing and the outdoors look so fun that no girl will ever want to stay inside,” Dyer said in a press release. “Through this project and my nonprofit SheJumps, we want young girls to see positive, strong, and courageous women pursuing their passions and finding success. We want to show females everywhere: ‘if she can do it, so can I.’”
What began as a Kickstarter campaign to test the interest for such a project has become something much larger. With help from presenting sponsor Eddie Bauer, “Pretty Faces” is the first crowd-sourced, crowd-funded and most successful action sports Kickstarter campaign to date.
It is launching in Boulder on Sept. 30. It will be shown in Tahoe City on Dec. 7 at Tahoe Arts Haus Cinema and Dec. 12 at Harrah's Lake Tahoe at Stateline.
In addition to Dyer, other featured female athletes and key figures include Rachael Burks, Elyse Saugstad ,Ingrid Backstrom, Wendy Fisher, Angel Collinson, Nadia Samer, ,Olympian Devin Logan and more.
