Freeskier Magazine Hosts Annual X Games Athlete Welcome Bash In Aspen
Every year people come in droves to Aspen, Colorado for the Winter X Games. This year's X Games 15 was no exception. But there is more than just incredible skiing and riding on the docket for the annual Extreme Games. It's hardly a secret that the tiny town parties every night like it's going out of style, so why not join the fun? So every year Freeskier and a select group of sponsors throw a welcome bash for athletes, industry, friends and family, to kick off X Games the right way. This year we teamed up with Vitamin Water and Sailor Jerry Rum inside of the Sky Hotel to throw quite the shindig.
When it comes to these parties there isn't much to say, other than beverages were consumed, laughs were had, friendships re-kindled, relationships formed, business dealt with, good times had, said drinks spilled, glasses broken, dance parties, pictures taken and it was probably the epicenter for a few one-night stands. Athletes, Team Managers and clingers alike moved to the beats of the DJ and sipped on sponsor drinks all night. The women had completely finished their competitions, so they were ready to let loose, including slopestyle silver medalist Keri Herman. Don't take our word for it, check out the photos. And we'll see you next year at the 2012 Winter X Games in Aspen, CO for another grand party.
