It’s indisputable." — Lynsey Dyer What does it take to ski off a 65 ft. cliff in the back country of Jackson Hole? Lynsey Dyer, one of the best big mountain skiers in the world, explains the motivation and mindset needed to accomplish so many feats in the male-dominated industry of extreme sports. At 16, she won the Junior Olympics in Downhill Skiing, and soon after leaned into a life of back country freestyle skiing where rules were meant to be broken. She’s charged down fresh powder winning titles at the Freeride World Tour and was named Skier-of-The-Year multiple times. Featured on major networks and TV shows – check. Heli-skiing – check.
