Great stories on the chair! Tax lawyer from Boston got it figured out. Now his 14th winter working from the mountains. In his first year clients were worried. They protested, “how will we be able to call you?” He tells them frankly, “dial 1 before the number!” #AltaMagic #upLIFTingStories

Women and their Wisdom

Yep, it’s out there. I didn’t have to look too hard. A few shared wisdoms I came across by chance in the last 48 hours…  

Evelyn Lees gives the best intro to avalanche awareness talks every year, sponsored by REI, SheJumps.org, and our local Utah Avalanche Center… Monday night was ladies only, and the room was packed! If there is such a thing as a snow nerd’s avalanche forecaster crush, I have one on Evelyn! 

Rachael Burks surprised the audience as the guess speaker on Monday night and while she claims it was her first time speaking in public and that she was nervous, her amazing oral story telling abilities took hold. She is incredibly vibrant, lively, and present like no other human on earth. She had the crowd engaged from the get go, and there was no shortage of laughter, humility, and wisdom from her life as a professional skier. Last year she also founded www.FemaleWolfpack.com with the mission to give women a platform to share their videos with the world. 

Molly Baker has written the words that so many of my female peers think but have a hard time putting into words or making public for the benefit of all women, especially impressionable younger generations. These are words to live by right here! Be skilled, Find your own route, Practice, Be authentic, Remember your teenage self, Be relatable, Challenge yourself. 

Lynsey Dyer is speaking up and out against a web article originally posted by Freeskier Magazine. She speaks in defense of female skiers often pressured into “playing the hot card” for attention, and urges Freeskier to “be so damn good that no one can ignore you” by NOT succumbing to “cheap tricks” to get page views, such as objectifying women vs celebrating their skills and unique qualities. 

Elyse Saugstad recently gave a TEDx talk at Golden Gate Park, “When Passion and Fear Collide,” where she recounts many “of the highs and lows that come with being an extreme skier.” She goes on to discuss rational and irrational fears and the tools she uses to counter act or embrace her fears to climb mountains, both real and proverbial. It is honest, powerful, and empowering. 

Who else is sharing some female wisdom this week? Share it! SHARE IT!!!
