Aspen Square Daily News
WINTER "X" IS OVER NOW; with the final day last Sunday. The annual winter games were a great success again. It's the grand event of winter - the ESPN Winter X-Games, in Aspen this past weekend from Thursday through Sunday. All events were staged at Aspen's Buttermilk terrain park area, and all competitions are always free for spectators. Events were aired live on ESPN and ABC and featured new competitions, a new superpipe, and enhanced coverage across ESPN networks. For the first time at Winter X Games, snowboarders and skiers competed in a giant 22-foot superpipe. Wow!
The weekend brought the excitement of the Winter X-Games AND 8 inches of new snow to the mountains of Aspen! It is cooling down noe after some very mild days, and more snow is expected for Saturday and Sunday. X-Games events continue as well. Watch live coverage each evening on ESPN, as skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers all compete for X-Games Gold. It's a fun weekend for sure!
Snow is falling again, taking over from the sunny skies of the past days. The weekend will see light snow in town and more snow on the slopes - heavy at times. Wow, this is the place to be for a winter sports vacation! The Winter X-Games are underway, running through the weekend. Watch for live, prime time TV coverage on ESPN and ABC. The set-up at Buttermilk is truly amazing. We have SO MUCH snow and now more on the way -- what great skiing and snowboarding ahead.
