Best Female Performance in a Leading Role
SKI: Grete Eliassen, “Say My Name”
Eliassen gets props for putting together one of the first all-girls ski films that people actually watched and enjoyed. Secondly, she gets props for nailing the most diverse female segment we’ve seen in a while. The film, which stars her, includes everything from rail slides in the nation’s capital to big-mountain lines in Utah’s Wasatch range. “Grete definitely put together a notable film with impressive skiing,” two-time X Games gold medalist Kaya Turski says. “Usually girls get short segments and it was cool to see Grete skiing to her fullest potential in full segments.”
Honorable Mention: Rachael Burks, Teton Gravity Research’s “Light the Wick”
