Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based KGB Productions has a new ski movie out next fall called Wyoming Triumph. Check out the film trailer below, and our interivew with KGB producer Sam Pope on the next few slides.Most ski films travel all over the world to get footage. But you stayed in Wyoming. Why was that? Sam Pope: This concept developed over several years of taking small trips here and there around Wyoming, including  the Wind Rivers, the Wyoming Range, the Snake River Range, the Gros Ventres, the Absorokas, even the west side of the Tetons. We began to realize that there was something special here. The other part of it is just what you said. Other production companies are going on these insanely exotic ski trips all over the world. We want to make the point that we have terrain that good, right here in our backyard of Wyoming. Kind of a "keep it local" thing. The skiing just as good, but the experience is a little more organic. And that's important to us.

The 27-year-old has won big-mountain competitions, she’s appeared in Warren Miller and Teton Gravity Research films, and this winter, she won Female Skier of the Year at the Powder Video Awards. She's hosting a television show with Outside TV, and she co-founded a non-profit called She Jumps, which seeks to get girls into outdoor sports and offers avalanche safety and learn-to-ski clinics. Lynsey grew up ski racing in Sun Valley, Idaho, and went on to win a downhill gold at the 1996 Junior Olympics. She majored in graphic design at Montana State University and currently works as a graphic designer and artist at her home in Jackson. "I live in jackson because it's the most beautiful place to come home to," Lynsey says. "My commute to the mountain alone gives me all kinds of ideas for art and photography projects. This place also keeps me humble, from the massive terrain and crazy weather; even getting to the airport is often an adventure."Photos by Heather Erson Photography.
