Pro skier Lynsey Dyer is producing a new women's ski movie, due out this fall, called "Pretty Faces" by Unicorn Picnic Productions. Dyer, along with Lexi Dupont, Jacqui Edgerly, Mckenna Peterson, and others recently shot footage for the movie around Whistler, BC.
Three of a Kind

"My biggest intention with the film is to include the voice of the early pioneers that we owe so much to for paving the way," says Dyer. "Little girls these days need more female role models -- my whole intent is to show them that they exist."
The girls went to Keyhole hot springs their first day in Whistler. Due to a near impossible 1,000-foot-plus climb down near dusk, they opted to fire off a few rounds instead of making the treacherous descent.

Nadia Samer, a Whistler local, acted as guide for the trip. Most of the girls had not ridden a snowmobile before, and had borrowed machines for this film trip from Broken Boundary Adventures.

Yellow Pants Party
All the girls showed up on the first day with yellow pants, except for Nadia. By the end of the trip they had a "Yellow-pants-dance" and song on lock down.
