Shaun White still reigns, as ESPN Winter X-Games wraps up with record-breaking attendance and breaking records, across the bluebird sky. Today, there's powder. Overnight, Mother Nature, too, became a little more extreme...fresh powder and a winter snowstorm coming down the pike (and the SuperPipe)...see you on the slopes!
Amidst the X-Games energy, Jazz Aspen brings some of their celebrated artists to town for an intimate, nightclub-esque show at the Little Nell. "Women in Jazz" comes to the downstairs, complete with candlelight and stage-side seating. Feel the groove of the big city for an upscale live music night out. Kicking off January 28 and every last Friday and Saturday night of January, February and March. For more info, www.jazzaspen.org.
The ESPN Winter X-Games come back to Aspen this weekend, their 10th year at Buttermilk Mountain. The rollers and jumps are shaped for the Boardercross, the 22 foot half pipe is groomed and ready, all the lights are in place for the night time events, and ESPN is ready to show it all on live TV in prime time this weekend. All events are FREE to spectators, including concerts, competitions, music and entertainment. All the stars of winter skiing and snowboarding will be competing for X-Games Gold. An exciting, fun and wild weekend is ahead!
