Ski

While most Calgary kids Izzy’s age were riding the lifts and hitting gates, the Lynch family was busy building a backcountry lodge in British Columbia, an experience that fostered Izzy’s love for wild spaces at a young age. Although Izzy did race and compete at an international level, it was the feeling of freedom that she found in the isolated mountains at the lodge that always drove her. Now a mother, she shares those same values with her own child. As a storyteller, Izzy’s craft is to merge skiing with those kismet moments she has in remote areas, sharing different narratives of herself and others pushing their boundaries. There is no boundary for her art, as she prefers to take a holistic approach, merging all facets of her life from skiing, child rearing, filmmaking, and writing to include even the daily mundane details.
