All-girls ski movie coming to Miners’ Hall

The new ski film “Pretty Faces” comes to the Rossland Miners’ Hall on Oct. 6 and features Rossland native Leah Evans

Rossland native Leah Evans is coming back home, albeit on the big screen when the new ski film “Pretty Faces” comes to the Rossland Miners’ Hall on Oct. 6.

Evans, now a Revelstoke-based pro skier, said making the ski movie was to inspire women young and old to get out and enjoy the slopes.

“We’re excited to be part of a project that encourage girls and women of all ages to get on their skis and challenge themselves both on and off the hill. The film is about encouraging people to follow their dreams and at Girls Do Ski, we’re big fans of that.”

What began as a Kickstarter campaign to test the interest for such a project has become something much larger, said a press release.

With help from presenting sponsor Eddie Bauer, “Pretty Faces” is the first crowd-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.

Sarah Woods, who also works with Girls Do Ski freeski camps,  said the movie is a source of inspiration on so many levels.

“For me, skiing and Girls Do Ski has been a huge source of personal inspiration both on and off the ski hill. The messages Girls Do Ski offers their participants about facing fears, stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things are all messages mirrored in this film.

“For me personally, Girls Do Ski has been a huge source of inspiration and helping me make changes both on my skis and in my personal life. Our hope is that by bringing “Pretty Faces” to Rossland, these important messages will reach girls and women and continue to create inspiration and powerful change.

Showtime on Oct. 6 is 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 and available at Red Pair Shoe Store.

The movie will also be playing Nelson at the Capitol Theatre on Oct. 7.
