Local Snowless Skiing Film: "Love Me Cinder"

This just in from my friend Renee Davidson at GrassrootsPR. Jonas Tarlen's video is hilarious - he's also done a Himalayan expedition video, without the Himalayas. What a hoot! -hoc


Local Snowless Skiing Film Released on DVD
"Love Me Cinder" Now Available at Pine Mountain Sports

BEND, Ore. – December 14, 2007 – "Love Me Cinder," a locally-made movie about the adventurous sport of snowless skiing, is now available at Pine Mountain Sports. Filmmaker Jonas Tarlen of Bend debuted the short film at the Powder Hound Preview, which was held in the Tower Theatre on November 28. It was the second installment in Tarlen's snowless-skiing series. The first also debuted at Powder Hound, in 2006.

"Jonas' cinder skiing film was, once again, the crowd favorite," said Dan McGarigle, owner of Pine Mountain Sports, which sponsors Powder Hound. "We had so many requests that we asked him to burn it onto DVD."

Both cinder skiing films are now available on one DVD at Pine Mountain Sports. Discs cost $12 each, and proceeds will help support Tarlen's ski habit. A one-minute movie trailer is available at

Powder Hound is Pine Mountain Sports' annual "Welcome to Winter" party. Hundreds of locals pack the Tower Theatre to watch ski slideshows and movies made by locals. Organizers raffle off thousands of dollars worth of outdoor gear, and proceeds benefit Central Oregon Trail Alliance and Deschutes County Search and Rescue. This year's event raised $2500.
