Lynsey Dyer Launches Official Pretty Faces Teaser, Sets Tour Dates
Posted on September 8, 2014

Since she first pitched the creative idea, we’ve been big backers of Lynsey Dyer’s Pretty Faces project. For Dyer and her crew of hard-charging ladies, it’s been a long road of finding creative inspirations, launching an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, stacking serious footage, editing into the wee hours and apparently, unicorns. But after many stages, phases and diversions, and much anticipation for an all-women’s ski movie, the Unicorn Picnic crew has simultaneously launched the teaser and announced the tour dates. The LYA blog will report on the tour kick off in Boulder on September 30th and be first in line to cheer on the new women of ski film when Dyer takes her tour to our hometown. Check the dates and read the release below. —LYA Editor

Lynsey Dyer, a premier big mountain freeskier and Eddie Bauer athlete, is excited to announce that joining the roster of ski films dropping this fall will be the first-ever crowd-sourced, crowd-funded all-women’s ski movie, “Pretty Faces.” Along with starring in the film, Dyer is the visionary behind this project.

“We are on a mission to make skiing and the outdoors look so fun that no girl will ever want to stay inside,” states Dyer. “Through this project and my nonprofit SheJumps, we want young girls to see positive, strong, and courageous women pursuing their passions and finding success. We want to show females everywhere: ‘if she can do it, so can I.’”

What began as a Kickstarter campaign to test the interest for such a project has become something much larger. With help from presenting sponsor Eddie Bauer, “Pretty Faces” is the firstcrowd-sourced, crowd-funded and most successful action sports Kickstarter campaign to date.  A project that is sure to shatter the status-quo of women in ski movies, this film is a first of what is hopefully a revolution across the board in action sports.
