The X Games Aspen 2019 wrapped up last week. Four days of the best action sports competitions in the world featuring snowboarding, skiing, snowmobile and snow bike mixed with a generous dose of some of the most influential and diverse music acts around today. It all took place at Buttermilk Ski Area in the heart of Aspen, Colorado, USA. X Games showcased the talents of more than 200 world-class action sports athletes competing for medals and prize money. More than 75 Olympians were on hand.
It seems that each year the snow build out does the year previous. Massive amounts of snow are needed to build the Slope Style, Snowbike, Super-Pipe and Big Air. The course designers push the envelope of what can be done with snow. This challenge is carried out by the skillful crew of Snow Park Technologies. Using a fleet of PistenBully Park Pros, 400W winchcats and PistenBully 600s, it takes a full month of pushing, shaping and crafting to produce the impressive X Games venue. The end result is a world class course for world class athletes. This year's saying sums it up: "X Gonna Give it to ya."
