Winterlust Through Amie Engerbretson’s Eyes

“A breathtaking setting, heart and mind-opening classes, soul-filling music and an incredible community of amazing humans. Winterlust, you stole my heart.”

There are no better eyes through which to see Winterlust than Amie Engerbretson’s!

Not only is this world-renowned pro skier, but as the daughter of a cinematographer, she’s inherited the eye and the know-how to capture the thrill of a fresh-tracks descent.

We were so fortunate to have Amie lead ski sessions at Winterlust—and hop on her mat for our mountaintop yoga and meditation classes. As a lifelong Tahoe resident, she’s a yogi who has been to our Wanderlust Festivals many times, so it was a natural fit for her to combine her mindfulness practices with leading alpine pursuits. She led ski sessions daily, and gave a fireside chat about her involvement with Protect Our Winters at the Ricola lodge, which was our Winterlust homebase for the duration of the event.

Check out her daily recaps, below!

Day 1 of @winterlustfest in @skitaos was positively lovely! Skiing under sunny skies, yoga amongst amazing souls, a hot tub aprés party and a splash of @kjwines! What else could girl ask for… well the retro silent disco skate party later is going to be the cherry on top! Can’t wait for more! @wanderlustfest

The magic continued on day two of @winterlustfest@skitaos. Sunrise tracks, yoga w/ @ginaontheloose and more runs, all capped off with a beautiful slope-side dinner by @matthewdeliso and @kjwines… just when I thought It couldn’t get any better, we were serenaded by @garthstevenson fireside under the night sky… @winterlustfest you are stealing my heart!
