X Games night shot by Jeremy Swanson '12

ESPN’s Winter X Games is the epitome of winter sports competitions which have been held in Aspen Snowmass since 2002. Comprised of the greatest winter sports athletes in the world, the event brings everyone together annually in late January to compete in various skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling disciplines. The event is held at the base of Buttermilk Mountain and provides spectators with easy access and great views of each event throughout the weekend. In 2015, the event was taken to greater heights with the addition of concert components each day between competitions. Hip-hop stars Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa and electronic music sensations Skrillex and Chromeo headlined the X Games in 2015 creating more of a festival atmosphere around the sporting competition. The event will continue to evolve and is scheduled to be held in Aspen Snowmass through 2019.
