Professional skier, She-Jumps co-founder, graphics designer, photographer, filmmaker, TV host, mentor, action sports model and adventurer — perhaps the most difficult part writing a bio on Lynsey Dyer is defining her in the traditional sense. 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.

As a professional skier, Lynsey’s career has spanned over a decade. Starring in films from the likes of Teton Gravity Research, Warren Miller, Sherpa’s Cinema and more, Lynsey has skied on 6 continents, won every big mountain competition she’s entered,  been awarded Female Skier of the Year by Powder magazine and cemented her place as one of the best big mountain skiers in the world.  Turning to TV, Lynsey has hosted a handful of television shows for NBC and ESPN, and appeared on Good Morning America.

In 2006 Lynsey turned her efforts toward the non-profit sector and co-founded SheJumps, an origination dedicated toward increasing women’s participation in the outdoors. Today the organization is widely recognized both domestically and abroad, featuring year-round programs and initiatives designed to increase female participation in outdoor activities. Moreover, the organization strives to ensure that younger generations have the resources they need to get outside through adventure, education, and, community building.

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. Slated for a completion date of fall of 2014, this film strives to be an outlet and source of inspiration for women who define themselves in the outdoors.

In her youth, Lynsey Dyer grew up ski racing in Sun Valley, Idaho, and went on to win a downhill gold in the Junior Olympics. She majored in graphic design while ski racing at Montana State University and has designed a signature line of clothing for Eddie Bauer and other various companies involved in the skiing industry.

Living in Jackson, Wyoming, Lynsey is always seeking balance between her art and design, training as an athlete and non-profit work. “I can’t imagine it any other way,” She says of making a life out of the things she loves, “You can’t tell little girls to go follow their passions without putting yourself out there too right? I’m doing my best to walk the walk myself.”

Lynsey would like to thank Eddie Bauer, First Ascent, Fischer Skis, Gordini, Jackson Hole, Recco, Astrix, Black Diamond and all the others that help her on her journey.
