SBC SKIER: Happy by Lisa Richardson

Interior BC is by far my favorite place to ski, so when I got an email from Robin O’Neill last year saying she was coming to Revelstoke to ski and she was bringing a group of girls with her.. I was STOKED to say the least! I love showing people around my backyard— and skiing and hanging out with these girls is always awesome ( it doesn’t happen enough)  I think this trip had a big impact on all of us- Tessa Treadway, Laura Ogden, Tatum Monod, Lynsey Dyer and Leah Evans and myself. We  battled avalanche conditions and light- trying to make the most of the opportunity to ski and shoot together, and got to know ourselves a little bit better in the process. Lynsey and Tatum and I had just finished a week of shooting together, making fun of ourselves with #shitskiergirlssay video… and as Tessa and Laura traveled to Revelstoke from Pemberton- they realized this was the first time they would ski together since Jack’s accident in 2010 (see article for more details). As a result the pendulum swung from silly to heavy, and back again, as we spent time together shredding lines and hitting dongers, cautiously tiptoeing around a heavy avalanche cycle in the Selkirks, laughing till we cried, and working to capture the essence of Revelstoke in the rain. The result of the trip was this— an article in the latest SBC SKIER by Lisa Richardson with photos by Robin O’Neill... an awareness of the multiple dimensions of our skiing universe and a strengthened bond between all of us “skier girls”.  Here’s a taste.. Pick up a magazine and check it out!
