The Grand Women
In this past month, the Grand Teton has seen two firsts by female ski mountaineers. On Thursday, June 6, Kit Deslauriers became the first female to ski mountaineer to ski the Grand Teton solo, skiing the Ford, Chevy, and Stettner couloirs. A few weeks earlier, Kim Havell became the first woman to ski the Otterbody Route, a feat worth recognizing for the line’s sheer exposure and full commitment. (The first female descent of the Grand was by Kristen Ulmer in 1997, down the Ford-Stettner route.)

Standout Scando film operation Nipwitz dropped the trailer for their two-year film project called Brain Massage that promises to be an above and beyond banger. At least, if they’re able to keep the momentum they’ve built with some of the absolutely wild urban tricks in this trailer.
