    Holmlands are proud to present the latest film from Matchstick Productions - "Return to Send'er" - with an excluisve screening at the Rheged Centre Cinema in Penrith on Wednesday 6th November 2019. In partnership with Pure Powder, Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports and Disability Snowsport UK, this special screening focuses on 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 movie 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.
