Apres Ski as Telluride Ski Resort 

I had a dream about skiing last night. It was a beautiful spring powder day and after skiing all day we went to the base area for some après drinks. I’m sure I’m not the only one dreaming of skiing right now. As March turns to April, many skiers are dreaming of those perfect spring days capped by drinks in the sunshine with friends. While we can’t make these visions a reality, per se, there’s no need to give up on your dreams! To help those of you who may be craving après ski time with your buddies

So we can’t ski right now. What’s a skier to do? Last night, I hunkered down in the basement with my husband and three kids (one just home from college) to watch Aspen Extreme. “If it’s so classic, mom, how come I’ve never heard of it?” Our kids have much to learn.
