An awesome mini-series drama with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
14 March 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Sam Elliott and Perry King play one of the greatest parts of their careers in this compelling drama situated in the Colorado Mountains.

Aspen, the mini-series,(also known by another name) is a wonderful drama wrapped around the locals and visitor skiers.

Why, oh why is this mini-series not available on VCR/DVD??? Not only is there a ton of money to be made, but this wonderful dramatic story should be shared with a new generation! I've been looking for this mini-series for over 20 years!

Please find out who and how we can make this wonderful dramatic story available for the masses!

There are so many twists and turns; testing of friendships, and outwitting the authorities.

Thank you for listening!
