Matchstick back for more

GOLDEN, BC, Nov. 23 /CNW/ - Golden Alpine Holidays Inc. (GAH) is pleased to announce that Matchstick Productions (MSP Films) will commence film productions this winter near Sentry Mountain Lodge. The first filming segment is from January 2nd to 16th. Future trips this winter are also being planned.

"The MSP crew and athletes are more than stoked for the opportunity to return to Sentry Lodge this season. Sentry is perfect for meeting our standard of killing it, in January," exclaimed cinematographer Dustin Lindgren. Two seasons ago MSP filmed many of the sequences in their movie "Claim" from Sentry. Professional Freeskier Eric Hjorleifson along with Mark Abma are expected to be on the trip.

MSP has produced 21 films, created the HDTV series "Focused," received Powder Magazine's "Movie of the Year" award five times out of eight, and were nominated for three Emmys in 2006 and 2007 for Outstanding Cinematography. MSP has worked in every environment from wakeboarding, mountain biking, kayaking, motocross, and BASE jumping right back to their roots in snowboarding and skiing. MSP Films remains the leader in action sport filmmaking.

In 1986 Golden Alpine Holidays became the first company to provide helicopter accessed alpine skiing and hiking opportunities. GAH accesses one of the largest ski touring areas in North America with 148 named ski runs encompassing over 150 square kilometers of ski terrain. In 2006, GAH amalgamated with Sentry Mountain Lodge and now operates 4 alpine lodges in the Northern Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia.
