Pretty Faces - OFFICIAL TEASER -  all female SKI film
Pretty Faces
Thursday Nov 30 7:00pmPretty Faces is the first ever, full-length, all female ski movie directed and produced by professional skier, Lynsey Dyer. As the Freeski World Tour champion 2005, Powder’s Female Skier of the Year 2011, and first woman to be featured in the opening scene of a Warren Miller Film, Dyer is a woman who knows how to trail-blaze by building up the women around her, too. Featuring an amazing line-up of the world’s best skiers, Pretty Faces celebrates a love of adventure, a passion for pushing the limits of skiing, and the ability to reach our fullest potential by working together to form a supportive community.

Recognizing the lack of female role models in the sporting industry, Dyer set out to create a film that was encouraging, uplifting, and enrapturing, by redefining what it means to “ski like a girl”. Get ready to be inspired by the pioneers of “never-evers” in this award-winning ski documentary.
