2.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Poor transfer Sept. 8 2002
First off, I love this movie. Sure, it's a bit ridiculous, but I like the characters, and the skiing footage is great. I'd probably give the movie itself 4 stars, but the DVD production deserves 2 stars, at best.
Issue 1: The video transfer is not very good. I did a side-by-side comparison with my VHS version, and the DVD image isn't much of an improvement. The colors are a little brighter, but the image isn't any sharper, and there is even dust evident on the DVD transfer. But what's worse is the letterboxing. I prefer to see all my movies in the original aspect ratio, so I was excited to finally see a widescreen version of Aspen Extreme. However, I was incredibly disappointed to discover that the 1.85-to-1 aspect ratio was achieved by cropping the top and bottom of the VHS image, rather than restoring the sides of the frame.
Issue 2: There is no Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. As you would expect from a not-so-popular catalog title, it didn't receive any special sound treatment. All you get is the Dolby 2.0 surround.
Issue 3: And finally, as you would expect, this title received no extra treatment in the special features department. Granted, with the ...price tag, you probably weren't expecting much, but if you didn't already know, this is the movie only. There's not even a theatrical trailer.
In short, if you already have the VHS version of this movie, don't bother to buy the DVD version. It's not offering you anything you don't already have.

2.0 out of 5 stars I am in love with Teri Polo June 10 2004
By Stacey
First of all, I bought this DVD at Best Buy for $5.99 so that shows right there that it was not a huge hit with audiences. I thought that price was a steal. Yeah maybe there is nothing special about this DVD and it is just basic and the quality is not that great, but just having the ability to watch it in my DVD player is a much better alternative than VHS.
I love the characters and how the develop them. Teri Polo has been one of my favorites in Hollywood since I saw her in this movie back when it came out back in 1993. Peter Berg is great as Dexter Rutecki and I like Paul Gross as T.J. Burke. How hot is Finola Hughes as Bryce Kellogg the rich and snobbish ski bunny. The skiing footage is great and breathtaking scenic views are plentiful. I realy enjoy watching this movie and it brings tears to your eye because these 2 best friends mean so much to each other and it hits you hard when tragedy strikes. I recommend this DVD and see if you can find it for a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good hearted ski story Oct. 5 2003
I don't exactly know why, but I love this movie. Yes, the storyline has been done before - but this movie pulls it off by combining some great scenery, skiing, and music. This movie makes you want to quit what you are doing and go to Colorado for an adventure of your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic movie Aug. 5 2002
By A Customer
Okay this might not be seen as being in the same category as Forrest Gump or Shawshank Redemption, but this has to be the most loveable movie ever. I can watch this movie over and over because of all the classic lines Dexter says throughout the movie.
