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!!
Don’t forget to buy your tickets for the Pretty Faces movie in Salt Lake City on October 8th, 2014! You can buy them at slcprettyfaces.eventbrite.com
Happy Labor Day! I decided to drive to Jackson to give some moral support to the editing crew for the Pretty Faces movie.
Pretty stoked to have been interviewed by Snowbunnymag.com this summer. Click HERE for the interview.

Be mindful of how you behave towards other people.
Particularly in conversation — concentrate on listening and engaging rather than letting your mind wander or thinking ahead to what you are going to say next.
Stay in the moment.
You’ll be amazed by how much better the communication will be.
What three things could be better? Check out this fun edit from Alex Riedman’s trip to Chile last year. She ended up 5th at the Chilean Freeskiing Championships and certainly found some of the sweetest spots in the Southern Hemisphere. Nice work Alex!
