Aspen may be known for its expensive houses and extravagant events (snow polo anyone?), but the world's most famous ski town really hit superstar status with the 1994 release of Dumb & Dumber. In their directorial debut, the Farrelly brothers tell the slapstick story of two dimwitted friends from Providence, Rhode Island who embark on a cross-country road trip to Aspen. Never mind that Llyod and Harry continually mis-locate the ski town in California, Aspen holds a special role in the film. As Lloyd (Jim Carrey) exclaims, the historic ski town is "a place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Asssspen." Here's the catch: while the Farrelly brothers did film in Colorado, no scenes were ever filmed in Aspen. We break down where all the wannabe-Aspen ski moments were filmed, from Salt Lake City to Breckenridge. Behold, the map guide to Dumb & Dumber.
