“Marj, she’s da best,” Fancy Rutherford said when she sent over the above edit by Ulysse Dubé Burelle. We watched the part (again, since much of the footage made up the ender in Too Hard) and said, yep, seems like she must be. But “da best” isn’t saying much, so here’s le back story.
Quebec-born-and-bred Marjorie Couturier decided she wanted to hit street spots instead of just the ski hill, but with no girl friends to help and no interest from the dudes who were already doing it, she just got her own shovel and started going at it alone. She once drove seven hours — with no prior notice — from Quebec to Boston to meet up with Danyale Patterson and film for Too Hard. She’s broken bones and bled for snowboarding plenty of times. However many years later, she’s not only ending movies, but a poster-girl for The North Face, and filming exclusively with the boys in the French Fragrance crew. When she’s not sending it on snow, she whips up a mean poutine at Le Chic Shack, too.
So, how does Marj feel about stuff? Well we asked and she answered, in her best broken English.
