And why not? It’s fall, otherwise known unofficially as pre-season. And if you’re like me, there’s nothing like a good dose of ski porn to get you stoked about what’s to come. So buy your tickets, grab some popcorn, and settle into your seat. It’s time to get your fill of breathtaking cliff jumps, incredible mountain scenery, and hilarious crashes (which sort of reassure us that yes, even the great ones fall).
Which movie am I most excited about? No surprise here: it’s Pretty Faces, the first ever all-female ski movie, produced by Unicorn Picnic. Some of you may recall the Kickstarter campaign Lynsey Dyer ran late last year to get it funded. (I wrote about it here). Yes, she succeeded raising money far beyond her initial goal, and yes, the movie will be making its debut in Boulder on September 30.
Here’s the trailer:
