Here’s everything you need to know about the 2016 Winter X Games

The 2016 winter X Games are finally upon us. For many athletes, X serves as the biggest event of the year, and for good reason. Featuring some of the best terrain park features mankind has ever produced (thanks Snow Park Technologies), X Games Aspen always seems to produce some of the most badass moments of the year and we couldn’t be more stoked to soak in all of the action.

Below, we’ve compiled all of the information that you could possibly need to know about the weekend (Jan. 28 – 31), whether you’re attending this year’s event or not. See each invited athlete list, a schedule of events, telecast info and more. Cheers to yet another year of X Games. May there be many, many more.
