1. Better Off Dead - John Cusack teen comedy from the mid-'80s. The main character loses his girlfriend to the captain of the ski team - and tries to win her back by learning to ski the "K12" - the most impossible run at his local mountain.
2. Ski Party - early '60s Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello surf movie-type ski movie. The highlights are when James Brown (yes, that James Brown) and Little Stevie Wonder (at about 14 years old) perform at the ski chalet.
3. Aspen Extreme - small town Michigan ski bums move to Aspen to prove their prowess on the slopes and with the babes.
4. Steep - a couple years old documentary about the history of "Extreme" skiing. Examines lives and careers of extreme skiers. Great commentary by aging pioneers reflecting on a lifetime of thrillseeking/risk taking. The movie was in commercial release just a couple years ago.
5. Snowball Express - really BAD early '70's Disney movie with Dean Jones. Main character inherits a mountain resort in Colorado which gives him the perceived freedom to quit his boring corporate job to move out west to run the resort. Of course, the "resort" is really a wreck of an old boarding house. His family then builds a ski lift and markets their new ski resort. I fondly remember watching this movie in my youth and really wanting to be one of the kids in the family and to run my own resort.
6. Blizzard of Ahhhs! Glen Plake's first big movie. Cool, neon colors and '80s hair.
