Join us for a premier of Matchstick Productions latest ski film, Return to Send'er! Outdoor Gear Exchange, Fjallraven and the Church Street Marketplace, will be showing the movie right on Church Street, complete with a beer garden from us at Switchback! Bring your favorite cozy sweater (or blanket!), a reusable cup for beer, and your stoke for the ski season!
Return to Send'er is all about the skills, backstories and mindsets of four elite freeskiers—a renowned veteran, a stunning rookie, a mind-blowing innovator and a big mountain star carrying on his father’s legacy—are all captured in oversized personal segments based largely around each skier’s home turf. Each skier brings a different style and outlook to the table, but they all have one thing in common: they love to send’er. The body of the film showcases some of the most progressive big and small mountain skiing filmed to date, and setting the stage for the end of the season when all four skiers unite for the mother of all heliskiing trips.
Tickets are $5. See you there!
