The 15th Winter X Games start up this Thursday here at Aspen/Snowmass. Our crew has been working hand in hand with ESPN to make sure that this is the biggest and best X ever. The course is looking pristine and we’re counting down the minutes until history is once again made at Buttermilk.

Ready to rock in the Superpipe.

The pipe cutter. For those wondering, it’s 22 feet tall!

Can you believe that’s a temporary structure? ESPN doesn’t mess around.

The big air jump needs an air traffic controller.

Lights, camera, action. See you on Thursday for Winter X Gamers 15 on ESPN!
