Along with snow biking, Women’s ski and snowboard big air will be added to the docket– making this the first X-Games to host female-only big air events in the United States since 2001. The last X-Games women’s big air events were held in Oslo, Norway and their success spurred inclusion in the Aspen games.

Bassnectar, The Chain Smokers, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, and G-Eazy will be performing live at the X-Games. 

Snow biking will utilize motorbikes modified with a front paddle and rear snow track in order to manage the snowy conditions. Snowmobile best trick will also return to the list of events after a 4 year hiatus.
