Keynote Speaker Lynsey Dyer: Professional skier, She-Jumps co-founder, graphics designer, photographer, filmmaker, TV host, mentor, action sports model and adventurer, is a must see this year! Transcending sport and media alike, Lynsey has become one of the most widely recognized and iconic figures in the action sport world. Whether standing atop a big line in Alaska or mentoring young girls through SheJumps, Lynsey is equal parts top caliber athlete, creative tour-de-force and a roll model for women-in-the-outdoors everywhere. This past season, Lynsey started Unicorn Picnic, a film production company with the goal of producing the first community driven all female big mountain ski film named Pretty Faces.
The Opening Keynote Speaker is Olympic mogul skier Heather McPhie. Heather grew up skiing with her family in Bozeman, MT and has always loved the mountains. She joined the Bridger Freestyle Ski Team in 1996 and remained a part of the program for eight years. In her first year, Heather competed in every mogul competition and despite rarely making it down the run without falling; she immediately fell in love with the sport. In 2012, Heather became the first mogul skier to pick up a Red Bull sponsorship. She used her new wings to soar to 9 additional World Cup podiums for a total of 15 in her career to date. She took home the U.S. National Title in both 2012 and 2013. Heather finished top five in the world each year for the past five years, three of which were podiums. In 2013, she became the first woman to compete backfull and d-spin in the same run at World Championships in Voss, Norway. At the 2014 US Olympics in Sochi she also made history by performing her more difficult air package.
