Knuckle Huck premiered at X Games Aspen in 2019, featuring notable riders such as Red Gerard, Rene Rinnekangas, Nik Baden, Kevin Backstrom, and Fridtjof Tischendorf, the latter winning gold at the inaugural event. The following year, the excitement continued with eight riders, including Ryo Aizawa, Halldor Helgason, and Knuckle Huck favorites Zeb Powell and Marcus Kleveland. In 2020, Zeb Powell, a newcomer to X Games, secured a gold medal. While the men's snowboard Knuckle Huck quickly gained popularity, a women's counterpart had yet to emerge. In 2021, Jamie Anderson courageously competed as the sole female rider, challenging the likes of Sebbe de Buck, Marcus Kleveland, and eventual gold medalist Dusty Henrickson. However, the absence of a dedicated women's category persisted in the subsequent two iterations.

Breaking this trend, X Games announced a groundbreaking development for January 2024: the debut of Women's Snowboard Knuckle Huck at Aspen. This marks a significant step forward, providing a new platform for female athletes within a realm that has historically fostered exposure, spurred progression, and offered definitive opportunities. Additionally, Women's Ski Knuckle Huck will also make its inaugural appearance, further expanding the scope of inclusivity in this thrilling event.
