About the Aspen X Games

More than 200 of the best winter athletes in the world come together to compete at the Aspen X Games. These games focus on three main categories: skiing, snowboarding, and motorsports. See everything from incredible tricks on the slopes to the Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb! Plus, this event isn’t all about the competitions. There are also concerts every night!
