After a bomber ski season in the Tetons, Jackson, Wyoming's Kim Havell, perhaps one of the world's top female alpine skiers, appeared in a documentary film called The Otter Kind, a ski short about a classic and famous route, the Otter Body, on the Grand Teton. Havell skied it this past spring. With her completion of that route (one of the biggest lines in the U.S.), Havell became the first female ever to complete it.
"The Otter Body ski success was the culmination of a great first season with new friends and ski partners in the Tetons. For me, it was one of many great days in the mountains and, with thoughtful preparation, it went as smoothly as possible," says Havell about the experience and the film. "We were all really pleased with a fun adventure on an exciting route on an iconic peak. It was also fun to capture the action with my GOPRO on slope and with a small film team down below."
