The Winter X Games is back at Colorado's Buttermilk Mountain! Expect an amazing lineup of snowboarding, skiing, bike cross, music, and food. This year marks the 16th consecutive year that the event is being held and what the organizers have in store will surely not disappoint.

New to this event? Then make sure that you attend the practice sessions as some of the best skiing happens here. The competitions will be held at SuperPipe and will begin around 11 am every morning. Men’s and Women’s competitions take place throughout the day. I recommend checking the sporting events schedule here to ensure that you don’t miss a thing!

After a full day of watching and cheering you will want to find a cozy retreat to refuel and recharge. Aspen is full of great eats and you will definitely find an eatery that hits the spot. If you can't wait to eat until you get back to your lodgings you will find plenty of options to choose from near Buttermilk Mountain. We suggest Bumps (famous for their Mediterranean-Inspired Made-to-Order Pastas & Salads) at the base of Buttermilk Mountain where Sugarpipe is in full view.

If transportation is on your mind. No need to worry! The town of Aspen has organized free buses to and from Buttermilk Mountain. We suggest taking this route as parking will be hard to find. If you would rather drive parking will be located at the Brush Creek Intercept Lot at Hwy 82 and Brush Creek Rd.

If music is more up your alley then you are in luck. The following artists are part of the lineup this year.
