One of the rewards of the slippery uphill climb that leads to movie stardom is the pleasure of schussing down the ski slopes at Aspen - Hollywood's winter headquarters of choice. Skiing, of course, entails a lot of time waiting for the next lift to the mountaintop, and it was surely that enforced interlude that led idle minds to dream up Aspen Extreme. It seems to have occurred to Patrick Hasburgh that there ought to be a movie in the notion of a drop-dead handsome hunk of a ski instructor who yearns to be a writer.

Here are two concepts you don't find in the same sentence. One million dollars. Fixer-upper. Unless you're house-hunting in Aspen. "A million-dollar house is a fixer-upper, right? It's going to be somewhat minimal. It's going to be a smaller home, an older home," said real estate agent Brian Hazen, who sells luxury properties for Coates, Reed & Waldron. In Aspen, in the last year alone, housing prices nearly doubled, with the average sale price going from about $1 million to $1.9 million.

From the very start - certainly from the moment you learn that the Continental Airlines plane from Denver to Telluride is capable of carrying only 19 passengers - there is a sense that this ski resort is different from its many Colorado competitors. It's a feeling not exactly dispelled on the one-hour flight southwest into the San Juan Mountains - sometimes called the "American Alps" - as the Beechcraft 1900 drones slowly over the spectacularly rugged and totally barren peaks. A passenger's comment that bad weather has kept the Telluride airport closed for 20 of the previous 27 days serves to reinforce the feeling.

After three weeks of scouring the wilderness and mountainous terrain for Travis M. Toly, authorities in Aspen, Colo. said yesterday that they had abandoned their search for the Haddon Heights neurologist. "The search has been suspended and the case has been (deemed) inactive at this time until some new information arrives," said Aspen Detective Sgt. Beth Ufkes. "If we get new information, we will reopen the case and look into it. " The decision to halt the search was made over the weekend by the Pitkin County Sheriff's Department, one of several agencies participating in the rescue effort, Ufkes said.

Look beyond the usual pathways for fall foliage. You'll find beautiful scenery and family fun in these places: 1. Empire State beauty See New York state's splendid foliage from the Esperanza Rose, a 65-foot wooden boat. It offers leaf-peepers dinner and lunch cruises on the waters of Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes region. Or consider viewing the colors while traveling through century-old canal locks and passing through historic towns aboard vintage watercraft. Take part in the nonprofit, educational Sam Patch and Mary Jemison cruises out of Rochester, and your family will learn about the historic Erie Canal and adjoining Genesee River.

Roy Renkin vaulted a charred log, stooped and pointed to a tiny green aspen shoot struggling up through the ash-blackened earth. "Here's a happy little camper," said the gleefully muddy field biologist, his laughter echoing amid a thousand-odd acres of spindly lodgepole pine corpses. Renkin, 32, the cherubic son of a Pittsburgh steelworker, has made a historic discovery about aspen trees that wouldn't have been possible if roughly a third of the nation's oldest national park hadn't burned to charcoal in 1988.

HEF BARES ALL IN CARRIE CAPER There is no end, it seems, to the love-gone-sour battle between Playboy magazine publisher Hugh Hefner and ex-live-in Carrie Leigh. The latest wrinkle is an article in the August Playboy called "The Great Palimony Caper" and it gives a fuller accounting than anyone could want of the $35 million palimony suit brought by Leigh against her Playboy mansion bunkmate of four-plus years - a suit she later dropped. The magazine was released at the same time last week that Leigh, 24, was charging on "Entertainment Tonight" that Hefner "supplied me with almost every drug that I ever took in that house.

By singer Jon Anderson's own admission, he and jazz-rock violinist Jean-Luc Ponty "have been around the block more than a few times. " But younger generations of musicians have nothing on them when it comes to embracing modern technology to create and support their art. Both artistically and financially, the duo's new CD, "Better Late Than Never," released under the banner of the Anderson Ponty Band, is a product of the digital universe. "Through the Internet, I'm able to make music with people everywhere, and I was working with a friend of mine, Michael Lewis, on a couple of songs a few years ago, and early on he said he knew Jon-Luc Ponty, and Jon-Luc was going to play on one of our songs, which was kind of cool," explained the gossamer-voiced Anderson, beloved in this neck of the woods for the decades he spent as the singer/co-composer of progressive-rock giant Yes. He was speaking from Stroudsburg, the Pocono Mountains town where the band rehearsed for its upcoming tour, which kicks off there tonight, and Tuesday hits Glenside's Keswick Theatre.

IT'S NICE TO SEE that Charlie Sheen has grown up. The once-troubled actor spent the better part of Christmas Day in a Colorado jail cell and it doesn't seem to have been due to either drugs or hookers. Unfortunately, Charlie was in the klink because he was booked for investigation of second-degree assault and menacing, both felonies, along with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. The person he allegedly assaulted and menaced was his wife, Brooke Mueller, who called 9-1-1 from their house in Aspen.

" Mr. Ford, 70, of Wynnefield, past president of the award-winning Aspen Farms Community Garden Club in the Mill Creek section of West Philadelphia, died of an apparent heart attack Sunday at his home.

VAIL, Colo. - Having landed a prime spot in Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, possibly for the next three years, the Philadelphia Orchestra is now discovering what precisely is involved. Few if any classical music institutions west of the Mississippi have flourished as Bravo has: What began in 1987 with chamber music now hosts three symphony orchestras in five weeks. And this in Vail - a ski resort that didn't exist before 1962. Even orchestra president James Undercofler, who joined the organization after the Vail deal was signed last summer, admits to having Googled the town last Sunday to see where his orchestra will be ensconced for the coming week.

People vacationing here usually compile a checklist of runs to ski or snowboard on, and things to do during a week's visit, but it's a good bet they have not skied the Wall of Death, launched off Bear Jump, careered around a corner on a snow bike, or tackled the unforgiving grind rail of Voice Change. Not on your checklist? Obviously, you are not a teenager or a child. You haven't explored Buttermilk Mountain. And you don't have a copy of the latest kids' trail map, the official guide to the tree trails, SuperPipe, and the longest slopestyle terrain park in North America.
