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

Howelsen Hill

Although many of us are disappointed we’re not able to enjoy our home’s beautiful ski destinations, what better time to brush up on our history about these resorts we’ve grown to love so much.

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. It came out seven years before he was born.  I’m suggesting movies with a plot that have killer ski scenes—not just ski movies with awesome ski action from Warren Miller, TGR, and MSP, though we’ve got links for those below, too—or maybe even slightly

We understand that there will be some frustration regarding our decision, but we feel strongly that this is best for everyone.
