The ski season is closer than you think, and this year's crop of ski movies will surely get you excited for the return of snow.

Why it matters: Coloradans love hitting the slopes, so why not get inspired and watch the best skiers and snowboarders slash the big screen with outrageous tricks on death-defying runs?

Of note: The Warren Miller production team's latest, "Winter Starts Now," features a number of Colorado connections: the National Brotherhood of Skiers at Snowmass, the ski jump at Howelsen Hill and Steamboat local Noah Elliot.
