The other 3 ladies that I am working with on this project are all inspiring to me in different ways and when Karissa who is cofounder of Apres Visuals came to me wanting to make a film telling a story about skiing and our link to the sport, I thought it was such an awesome idea. Karissa was my first Babe Force patch recipients and she is one of the more inspiring women I have ever met and is always pushing the limits. I watched her throw a back flip in her second big mountain competition ever, she did not land it, but had such a smile on her face when she came through the finish. (so awesome!) She is always so stoked to ski and be with all the ladies. We all have known each other, but have known skiing differently and it has inspired us in different ways.

Kim is my newest friend in the group, she is also one I have looked up to from afar and when we finally met I felt that we became automatic good friends. She is such a genuine person and is always looking out for everyone. She also has skied some amazing mountaineering lines around the world, but is the most humble person I have met. It is like pulling teeth to here about her adventures, she always wants to know how I am doing!
|Fun times on the horses!|
Together I feel that we make a great team to make a short film happen. This is something I have always wanted since I started competing 6 years ago. We hope to bring more ladies into the mix and inspire more women to go above and beyond what they think they can do! We also hope to inspire the men to do the same! Ha! ha!
