Alpine Finishing School: 2015

Check out this sweet video about the Alpine Finishing School by Sierra Anderson (FoxCapeProductions.com) –an all-women’s ski mountaineering course taught on a glacier every April. I am so stoked I get to be a part of this–this year will be year 4!!

About 6 months ago, I was contacted by Tatum Marshall of Stanton & Co. to do a brief interview about SheJumps. I asked her what the interview was for, and she said it was “market research for one of their clients.” I guess I must have done a decent job! About 2 weeks ago, Lynsey informed me that SheJumps had been chosen as one of the 2014 Toyota Everyday Heroes. I suppose they were drawn to our programming, but Lynsey’s new film, of which I am also a producer (“Pretty Faces: the story of a skier girl”), is also an amazing cornerstone for both of us–so it was truly a team effort, and we accepted the award on stage together.

What does it mean to be an Everyday Hero? I suppose it means that the cliché of “hard work always pays off” is true. It means that you can be driven by principle, determination, stubborn habits, and a love for the outdoors until it pays off. I think what feels the best about it how many people aren’t just saying “Congratulations!,” but they are saying, “It’s about time!” I didn’t really understand the breadth and depth of the impact SheJumps was making, but it is sparking some serious “big-picture” thinking—and I can’t wait to see what happens next! Onwards & upwards to 2 weeks on the road: Missoula, Jackson, Portland, and San Francisco tour stops!!

Happy Friday!

These 12-year old skiers are better than you will ever be. Another great edit featuring the epic young woman, Kelly Sildaru!

And this guy in Argentina has one of the best POV edits I’ve seen in a long time. Sigh. Next year, South America!!!
