About

Why make an all female ski film?

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 AhhsSki 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.”

Despite women’s presence in:

  • ~40% of the skiing population and
  • ~30% of the adventure sports film viewership

…only 14% of athletes in major ski films were female this past season. Additionally, last season’s 14% was record female representation, up from 9% the previous season.

We see this as an opportunity to provide an inspiring documentary ski film told from a female’s perspective to connect with and celebrate skiing’s female population.

Although skiing is the focus of the film, we hope to showcase women’s on-hill success–from professional skiers to recreational enthusiasts–to inspire girls of all ages to pursue their dreams, walk the path less traveled, and reach their fullest potential, whatever path they choose.

Our Mission

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.”

 

  • *Filming: In addition to standard in-house film production efforts, we turned to you guys, the audience, for contributions in this unique “crowdsource” approach to this film!
  • *Fundraising: This project is independently funded with a portion going to SheJumps (non profit). We will be looking to raise money through both corporate (sponsorship) and private (you!) means. For more information click the “Store” tab and help up out!
