    Why Aspen Extreme saved my life.

    "Aspen Extreme saved my life"
    by The word Gaper is overused

    Aspen Extreme is more than a movie. As many, many others have found, Aspen Extreme (or AEX) brings wonderful thoughts of life as a ski instructor in the early '90s. Ahhhh, was there no better time to be a skier... I doubt it. The early '90s were the forefront of the freeskiing movement we see today, and no other movie describes the passion and versatility of skiing as AEX.

    In 1993, after watching Aspen Extreme for 8 straight hours, I realized that my life was saved! Not that I had been dying or was thinking about ending life, but I realized how much of life I was missing. Aspen Extreme had the power to provoke thought. Dexter Rutecki and TJ Burke were my heroes and to this day still are. I realized that day, after endless hours of 80's music, neon colors, rear entry boots, K2 skis, and timeless Doug Coombs footage, that I needed to live in a van, move away from my barn in Indiana and find a reason to move to Aspen.

    Thanks Aspen Extreme, now I live in a van in the parking lot of a grocery store and get free wi-fi from McDonalds! Life is good and Extreme as hell.

    Movies (and TV as well) are just for losers who'd rather watch life then live it.

    I'd like to add more to this:

    Aspen Extreme is a 'feel good move' that should be viewed annually by individuals seeking extreme footage prior to ski season.

    Best time for view = Fall. No doubt, fall is a phenomenal time to watch Dex & TJ and get stoked for the upcoming ski season. Living in CO has proved one thing, that's for sure. Aspen is extreme as all hell, and hooking up with a loaded rich broad can set you on a path of continued success.

    May I present the "Aspen Extreme" Quote contest?
    I'll get you all started, but keep in mind I've left the real jewels out:

    "Start the Car"

    "Well, if you've never touched her, how do you know she has a tattoo on her ass?"

    "You went home with the Chick from Vail...It was a cousin, who could have made and onion cry -- that face, it still haunts me."

    "These guys are good, Teege."
    "Ya', but they're not from Detroit"

    "He's lyin', we're freezin'!!"

    "Last time I saw him, he was runnin' a stop sign on south Aspen"

    "I'll tell you what, Teege. I have been followin' you around this town for two years -- There's no one I'd rather follow -- -- Today, you're gonna follow me, try to keep up."

    "Hey Burke, try not to kill him too."

    It must be about time for Downhill Racer to show up on tv.
    In drove this drunken madman and stopped on a dime! Unfortunately the dime was in Mr. Rococo's pocket!

    Great quote, wrong movie. However "Hot Dog, the Movie" is far better than Aspen Extreme. The two do make a fine double feature.
