SheJumps.org presents the Salt Lake City premiere of Pretty Faces!
Pretty Faces is the story of a skier girl. A film that celebrates women who thrive in the snow and are committed to taking the path less traveled to accomplish their dreams. 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 voice and 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 Ahhh’s, Ski 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.”
Athletes scheduled to appear include Lynsey Dyer and Rachael Burks (more to be announced soon!). Connect on Facebook to share and invite your friends.
