"Skiing's the easy part."

Written and directed by Patrick Hasburgh, Aspen Extreme follows the stories of T.J. (Paul Gross) and Dexter (Peter Berg), two friends in their twenties just making ends meet while living in Detroit. Both T.J. and Dexter have a shared love for skiing, and soon enough T.J. talks Dexter into moving to Aspen. Unable to find a place to live that they can afford, they run until Robin (Teri Polo) who directs them a little ways out of town to a converted caboose that they can live in. Once they’ve settled in, T.J. becomes a real ladies man until he meets Bryce Kellogg (Finola Hughes). Bryce is wealthy, beautiful and successful, and she showers T.J. with attention, as well as encourages him to focus on his writing. Their relationship is short lived, with T.J. ending things because Bryce didn’t appreciate him.

T.J. begins seeing Robin after his split with Bryce. Dexter has involved himself in the local drug scene and gets himself into trouble when he flushes drugs down the toilet after freaking out at a drug deal. Needing to help Dexter, T.J. borrows money from Bryce to get him out of trouble and then out of obligation moves back in with her. Eventually Dex cleans his act up, with Robin’s help, and when the next ski season approaches, he asks T.J. to partner up with him in a competition.

While the two are working hard for the race, they decide to practice on a closed slope. This ends in disaster, as their skiing causes a huge avalanche that claims in Dexter’s life. T.J. is devastated and moves back into the caboose where he writes "Aspen Extreme" and recounts his experiences with his best friend. He and Robin rekindle their romance, and ultimately he decides to still enter the competition, but with a new partner, and vows to win the race to honor his best friend.
