2007 Winter X Games

For four days every January, some of the world’s most extreme athletes flock to Aspen, Colorado for the annual Winter X Games. For those of you in the dark, we have the scoop on the coolest event of the year!

Winter X Games - Big Names

There will be plenty of household names that will competing in Aspen in 2007. Snowboarder Shaun White, our favorite red-head since Carrot Top, will be the Winter X Games’ headliner. Other big names and past Winter X Games gold medalists include Tanner Hall, Kelly Clark (not to be confused with Kelly Clarkson), Nate Holland, TJ Schiller, Karin Huttari and Blair Morgan.

Winter X Games - Subtractions and Additions

Riding dirt bikes on the slopes is apparently too dangerous - even for the X Games. This year Moto X has been wiped off the list of events. Replacing Moto X is the snowmobile freestyle, where competitors try to jump their 500-lbs snowmobile over jumps that are up to 100 ft long. Is it just us or does that sound just as dangerous? Two other events have been added to the Winter X Games as well. The snowboard best trick showdown is a new event which should be a hit with the fans, as the top snowboarders in the game go head to head on rails and a 65-foot kicker! You'll also want to keep your eyes peeled for the mono-skiercross competition where the world’s top disabled sit-skiers race down a course with bank turns and jumps.

The Winter X Games is entering its 11th season and take place from January 25-28 in 2007. The competitions are battled out at breathtaking Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colorado. Live coverage of the games will be broadcasted on ESPN and ABC.
