Winter X Games 2015 in Aspen

Winter X Games 2015 in Aspen

Remember your first night skiing experience? The crunchy feeling underfoot. The lights shimmering off the snow. Breathing the freezing air through your nose. The crisp sounds unabated by any heat waves. Now add the cheers of eskimo dressed fans, the smell of two stroke, and some of the best (and definitely the MOST entertaining) group of skiers, snowboarders, and riders in the United States and you have X Games.

The Winter X Games will be held this year January 22-25. This ESPN event has been in Aspen since 2002 and will continue there through 2019. If you haven’t been, this is worth the drive at least once in your lifetime. Daytime competitions are ideal for families while the night atmosphere brings out the screaming fans! Don’t count on eating a balanced diet, but there are several food vendors and plenty of hot chocolate! Parking is also usually an issue (it always is in Aspen) so park down valley and jump on the local bus RFTA for a small fee.
