The Story Of a Skier Girl, From a Man’s Perspective
A review of "Pretty Faces" from the Salt Lake City premiere
Pretty Faces: The Story of a Skier Girl, a film by Lynsey Dyer, sold out several days prior, as did the second showing at Brewvies later in the evening. Easily outnumbered by the opposite sex, no “bro-scene” in sight, I sat down to watch the film and see what came from Dyer’s highly anticipated two-year project, made to shine a light on women’s skiing.
Scultped In Time – The Artist
In the third episode of Sculpted In Time, Sherpas Cinema tells the story of The Artist
Sherpas Cinema does their Sherpas thing and makes a sweet edit of The Artist in the third installment of Sculpted Time. Normally, we wouldn’t post resort-branded content like this, but it’s the Sherpas and the footage is incredible. So kick back and enjoy earth, wind, fire, and water.

VIDEO: Faces of Dav—The Adventurer
Wind, couloirs, and snow in Bella Coola with Chris Davenport, Griffin Post, and Adam Clark
In the first episode of Faces of Dav, produced by Red Bull Media House, Chris Davenport travels to Bella Coola, British Columbia. In 2007, Davenport came to ski this same place with Doug Coombs for a segment in the movie Steep. Shortly after, Coombs passed away. Seven years later, Davenport returns to the same zone with Griffin Post and Adam Clark.
Griffin Post wrote a story from this same trip. After four days of unrelenting, pounding wind that kept the group tent-bound, Post writes, “Divinity in the mountains isn’t hard to come by, but sometimes it arrives at unsuspecting places. Often, godliness graces us on top of a remote peak, but other times it hits us behind a rock, squatting ass-out in the blowing snow. For me, it was the latter. It only took a brief glimpse of the sun, spires, and blue sky to kick the morning routine into high gear and send me sprinting back to the tents with news of the weather breaking.”
