Goofs

When the two arrive in Aspen from Detroit, they have the scenic Maroon Bells behind them. The road behind them doesn't go to Detroit, it continues for about a mile and ends at the Maroon Bells Wilderness. They would have been looking at a bunch of trees. Also, the road has a bunch of snow on it but in the next scene, where they show Ajax, there's no snow on the road. See more »

Aspen Extreme to me is a genuine classic
13 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aspen Extreme to me is a genuine classic in that it is one of only few movies that best depicts the cultural, demographic and geographic way of life in a Rocky mountain secluded super ski resort town in the beautiful state of Colorado. In addition, the story itself portrays harmoniously with the real life vision of a young adventurous individual who has made exactly the same decisions that Gross' and Berg's characters had made. Surely there could be equivocal view points to the writer's main intent, however, anyone who has followed, skied or rode the same tracks as Gross' and Berg's characters instantly familiarizes with the care that is taken by the writer in exploiting the liberating experience of leaving home to enter into a world of majestic beauty mixed with a sport that people with a similar passion and drive share interest in. The story as well as the visual effects consistently draw back on the natural grandeur and beauty of the Rockies as well as the emotional evolution that takes place with each changing season while living in such a town that many consider to be a life influencing period in time.
