For the past 21 years, the Winter X Games have provided thrills and spills for adventure sports fans all over the world.

2018 promises to be no different this weekend with around 150 of the world’s best heading to Aspen to showcase their talents over four days of exciting action.

First held at Big Bear Lake in California in 1997, two years after the Summer X Games first debuted, the Winter version has grown into an addictive spectacle.

For the last 16 years, home for the world’s premier action sports competition has been in Aspen, with the 2018 edition also returning to Colorado for more record-breaking attempts and world firsts.

Competitors will battle it out in a variety of disciplines and take the snowy stage looking to win gold, silver or bronze medals.
