MATCHSTICK PRODUCTIONS ‘Ruin and Rose’ ski film

Black Tie Ski Rentals of Telluride, Colorado sponsored the screenings of the 2016 Matchstick Productions ‘Ruin and Rose’ on November 18th, 2016 at the Telluride Opera House. The acclaimed writer/director Ben Sturgulewski came together with the award-winning team at Matchstick Productions and their two decades of filmmaking expertise to deliver “RUIN AND ROSE,” an epic creative vision brought to life by the talents of the world’s top skiers.

Black Tie Skis gave away a pair of skis at BOTH SCREENINGS and other great schwag! Anyone who attended in a black tie or bowtie received a $1 off any draft beer in the new Telluride Opera House Show Bar.


“A surreal future leaves the world without water and consumed by sand: the Big Empty. A group of children survives alone on the edge of the endless desert in the ruin of the now. When a young boy unearths an ancient relic hinting at the lost wonders of winter, he sets off in search of the ghosts that once called the mountains their home. This bold cinematic experience balances stunning skiing with a wild and hopeful journey into the forgotten lands of myth and magic beyond the Empty.

Presented by Under Armour in spectacular 4K resolution, “RUIN AND ROSE” features veterans and newcomers alike, including Mark Abma, Sammy Carlson, Markus Eder, Zack Giffin, Sander Hadley, Russ Henshaw, Eric Hjorleifson, Lukas Joas, Sean Jordan, Bene Mayr, Evan McEachran, Michelle Parker, Ole Pavel, Tanner Rainville, Austin Ross, Fabio Studer, Cody Townsend, Noah Wallace, and others. “RUIN AND ROSE” was filmed on location in Alaska, Austria, British Columbia, Bulgaria, California, France, Switzerland, and the deserts of Namibia.”
