Best Movie Ever
15 December 2006 | by (Breckenridge, Colorado) – See all my reviews

I grew up on Mt. Brighton, which is where our story begins. Aspen Extreme is the true-to-life saga of two amazing Midwest skiers who move to the mountains to pursue a more fulfilling life away from the rat race.

Unlike most ski movies, the locations in Aspen Extreme are really Michigan and Aspen as advertised.

Aspen Extreme is not your classic slapstick ski movie. The dialog, situations and characters reflect real daily life in a ski town. If you want to step into Rocky Mountain life, sit back and relax for 90 minutes with TJ, Dex, Robin and Bryce!
