Project Heli

Everyday life for Grace Brulotte is anything but normal. For Grace, a young adult with a physical disability, every moment of her day is filled with challenges. But not only does Grace have to face her physical challenges, she also is met with being misunderstood by the world around her, and finds that many have preconceived ideas of what she can and cannot do.

With the help of Laundromat Studios, Grace will be giving an inside look into life with a disability, and also her journey in discovering skiing and breaking through the barriers that came with it. Grace’s goals include skiing Polar Peak, tackling Catskiing with the help of Fernie Wilderness Adventures, and becoming the first woman tandem sit skier to Heliski in Canada thanks to Purcell Heliskiing, all of which will be viewable in a documentary coming in 2018.
