Salt Lake City, UT (April 5, 2023) “Advice for Girls” is a brand-new, feature-length ski film showcasing the collective experience of women in the ski industry. Throughout the film, athletes will share the lessons they have learned through their experiences and pass advice on to the next generation of female skiers.
The film is inspired by the poem “Advice for Girls,” written by Addy Jacobsend. Her hope is that her words will remind women and girls that they are worthy of success, allowed to take up space, and are extremely valuable to the ski industry. The Advice for Girls team hopes that this film will provide young girls with the inspiration to show up as their true selves and not let anything stand in their way.
The all-female cast AND production crew is extremely passionate about celebrating and uplifting women through empowerment, equal pay, and equal opportunities.
“I wrote the “Advice for Girls” poem all about the lessons I have learned as a female skier,” says author, producer, and athlete Addy Jacobsend. “Over the years there have been many limiting beliefs fed to me by the ski industry, and unfortunately, they have had the power to hold me back at times.”
“My hope is that both the poem and the film will help women and girls skip over some of those harmful, limiting beliefs and inspire them to take up space in the ski industry.”
There are thousands of people who are passionate about this movement and want to support women in skiing. Although the ski industry is supportive of this film, women still don’t receive the financial commitment from the industry that they deserve. In order to help this film reach its highest potential and make as much of an impact as possible the Advice For Girls team is turning to their skiing community to fill in the gaps: dads, moms, brothers, grandparents, supportive partners, friends, allies, and anyone passionate about women’s sports.
