Superheroes On Screen and Off
For skiers and snowboarders Fall is ski movie time. The leaves change color, the weather turns cooler and we head to the theater with friends to see our heroes on snow. This year is no different with Matchstick Productions' Superheroes of Stoke coming to a theater near you. If you live in Santa Fe, watching this movie supports another group of heroes - the Adaptive Ski Program. The ASP helps adults and kids with a range of disabilities ride the snow and enjoy the mountains

Winter is fast approaching and the Adaptive Ski Program brings you SUPERHEROES OF STOKE. Bring your friends and get stoked for the snow with Matchstick Productions' 20th Anniversary ski movie at the CinemaCafé. Come early for the 6pm show or stay up late for the 8:30pm screening.

SUPERHEROES OF STOKE honors the heroes who have made the sport of freeskiing what it is today and pays tribute to the heroes who gave their lives for what they loved. MSP’s film crews relentlessly traveled the globe in search of the moments that would define the cutting-edge of what is possible on skis. Highlights from 19 years worth of archived material have been edited amidst stunning new HD footage to demonstrate how far the athletes have progressed and how far boundaries have been pushed.
Shot in remarkable 4K resolution and utilizing the latest camera technology, SUPERHEROES OF STOKE features an all-star cast of heroes: Richard Permin, Mark Abma, James Heim, Sean Pettit, Jacob Wester, Cody Townsend, Ingrid Backstrom, Russ Henshaw, Eric Hjorleifson, Michelle Parker, PK Hunder, Riley Leboe, Gus Kenworthy, Logan Pehota, Sam Anthamatten, Leo Ahrens, and Aidan Sheahan. Also featuring legendary cameos from earlier generations of the MSP universe: Shane McConkey, Seth Morrison, Wendy Fisher, JP Auclair, Mike Douglas, CR Johnson, Tanner Hall, Eric Pollard, Hugo Harrisson, Sarah Burke, and many more.
The Adaptive Ski Program thanks all of their sponsors for their help in bringing SUPERHEROES OF STOKE to Santa Fe: Image Ratio Design and Printing, Kokopelli Rafting Adventures, Project 101.5, Santa Fe Brewing Company, Santa Fe Mountain Sports, The Santa Fe Reporter, Ski Santa Fe, SnowCode.org and Thomas Properties.
