Snowboard Iskola

I went to college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and X Games was always a big weekend for the booze-addled children we all were at that time. The chance to take a road trip with friends to glittery, shining ~Aspen~ made the event seem larger than life, so X Games holds a special place in my heart. And for good reason. It is one of those events that everyone knows about, boarders and non-boarders alike, and it is going down this weekend.

Some of the most popular athletes to participate in the X Games will make their returns, including Chloe Kim, who makes her first US competition appearance since Beijing 2022, and Eileen Gu, who was sidelined last year with a knee injury after her breakout debut. Zeb Powell will not only return to the fan-favorite Knuckle Huck discipline but will also compete in the inaugural OKX Web3 Snowboard Street Style event which both focus on creativity and style.

The ESPN/ABC broadcast will be hosted by Selema Masekela, Jason Ellis and Torah Bright, who makes her X Games talent debut. The digital broadcast will be hosted by Jack Mitrani and Gabby Maiden, who also makes her X Games talent debut. Brandon Graham, Craig McMorris and Torah will handle calling all snowboard competitions while Jimmy Coleman, Tom Wallisch and Maggie Voisin will handle the Ski events.
