Lynsey Dyer on “Real Jobs”, Jackson Hole, & Female Skiing

At 22 years old Lynsey Dyer found herself at the beginning of a promising career; having recently graduated with a graphic design degree from Montana State, she had won a competitive internship with a design firm in Bozeman. But something didn’t feel right, she wasn’t happy. And so she walked away from it and took decidedly different course - competing on the Freeride World Tour and she won. Ten years later Lynsey has stood atop many more podiums, been featured in movies, been on the cover of magazines, produced a woman’s only ski film and designed her own line of skis.

Had to laugh when it got to the “starving in Jackson Hole” part and the occurring epiphany we all need to justify staying LOL!  Great story Lynsey.

For anyone else, running along ridges like these would be a serious athletic achievement. For Kilian Jornet, the Catalonian Madman, it's practically a down day. The certain-death-exposure notwithstanding, Jornet makes quick work of the mountains around Åndalsnes, Norway.

That being said, his Troll Wall
