The Winter X Games are upon us once again. All the cheers, tears and (for industry-ites and spectators alike), the beers. Snowboardermag.com has all the coverage of the goings-on in Aspen, where the world’s best will grace the slopes of Buttermilk with hopes of a coveted Winter X medal. The pipe will be the event to watch, and as a pre-requisite to the Olympics in Vancouver a few weeks away, every competitor is looking to take down Shaun White after his pre-season Grand Prix dominance while the women are gunning to shut down Kelly Clark’s on-snow supremacy so far this winter. And lest we forget about Slopestyle and Big Air, where every contender is looking to podium and cash in on that X Games fame.

Stay tuned to snowboardermag.com for all the exclusive contest and behind the scenes coverage you crave. Below is the schedule of events. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to a little place called Asssssssssssspen.
