Pretty Faces tour coming to Saratoga Springs, NY!

When a video promo for Pretty Faces came up in my Facebook news feed one afternoon a couple years ago, I was riveted. I played it over and over, watching women dropping cliffs, shredding big lines, lifting hard and dancing with pure joy.

I figured the all-female ski movie from pro freeskier Lynsey Dyer would get made in a jiffy—after all, Dyer is a sponsored athlete who regularly appears in Warren Miller and Teton Gravity Project films, among others.

Two years, one big Kickstarter campaign and countless hours of work from Dyer and her team later, the movie debuted. In November, I drove to Burlington, Vt., to see its East Coast premiere. And I am beyond thrilled to announce that at 7 p.m. Saturday, it’s coming to Saratoga Springs, NY, thanks to the support of The Alpine Sport Shop and Skidmore College’s Ski and Snowsports Club. All proceeds will benefit SheJumps, a nonprofit which aims to increase the participation of females in outdoor activities.

Read about what it took to produce this gem of a movie in this ESPN story. Find more details about the Saratoga Springs showing on our Facebook page, which I’d be forever indebted if you’d share with anyone in the Saratoga Springs area. Learn about my impressions of the movie here, and read about my experiences as an ambassador for SheJumps here.

And below, enjoy a few behind-the-scenes shots of pre-movie preparations.
