This past weekend saw the 2012 Winter X Games go down in Aspen, Colorado and the athletes definitely performed!
Here’s our favourite 4 major highlights (with video):
Horgmo Torstein’s perfect Triple Cork in the Snowboard Big Air Final – he earned a perfect score of 50 but it was only enough to get him the silver medal.
Mark McMorris stomps the first Triple Cork 1440 to take gold in the Snowboard Big Air Final.
The first ever Front Flip landed on a Snowmobile by Heath Frisby in the Snowmobile Best Trick event.
Shaun White’s incredible Five-Peat and the first ever perfect score of 100 in the Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe Final.
Winter X- Games also held a tribute to fallen skier Sarah Burke who passed away in January doing what she loved best. Our thoughts go out to Sarah’s family and friends. R.I.P Sarah!
