This recipe stems from Lynsey Dyer’s zest for eating with her fingers, making art, and keeping it raw. Plus, these go great with wine.

SPRING ROLLS: Place lettuce leaves, carrot, and the other filling ingredients in separate bowls. Fill a large sauté pan with water and heat until hot. Place a clean dish towel on a flat surface. Submerge one rice paper wrapper in sauté pan water for a few seconds (not too long) until pliable. Lay wrapper on towel. Place one lettuce leaf in the middle of the wrapper and layer your choice of other ingredients on top. Do not overstuff (however tempting). Fold edges over the filling and roll it up like a burrito. Dip spring roll into sauces and savor your finger feast.

Hadley Hammer's Stew

Ski bums, stick with us here. Bourguignon sounds fancy, but it's an easy warming stew that you get to set on fire. Who doesn't love that?

She Jumps

Pro Skiers Turned Philanthropists

Lately some pro skiers have been using their influence to start nonprofits. We take a look at She Jumps, an organization co-founded by pro skier Lynsey Dyer, that aims to get girls into the outdoors. She Jumps is hosting a fundraiser in Salt Lake City on January 21. We also check out Alpine Initiatives, started by a group of skiers, that helps developing countries in need.

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.

The Women of Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole is home to a lot of ripping skiers. And turns out, a lot of ripping female skiers. Here are photos and bios of 10 of the best women skiers on the planet—from Lynsey Dyer to Jess McMillan to Resi Stiegler—who all happen to live in Jackson, Wyoming. Photos by Heather Erson.
