    I may be one of the only here who cares about action sports but this is going to be a badass year for slope style, half pipe, and big air.

    I hope Mark McMorris and Torstein Horgmo kick Shaun White's ass in slope style

    I've always loved the X-Games. I prefer summer to winter, but watch both.

    I can't believe Horgmo didn't qualify. But he's been terrible lately. I was in Breckenridge at the Dew Tour in December and he didn't do diddily-squat then either

    Yes but this style of competition is not really his thing. If he lands the triple cork tonight then he has a chance at winning. But the guy in 1st right now can also do that trick. (Nobody else in the finals can land the triple cork. One other rider can but he wrecked both times in the elimination round so he didn't move on to the finals)

    The slopes were sick today. Here's a pic of our last run


    No one was on the mountain today.

    For quite some time they have had multiple events across the globe but I think this year they may actually air them on ESPN also. It's like USA, France, Brazil, back to somewhere in Europe then finish year in LA.

    Got ours for free but a two day pass a week in advance is 200. That's with 10% discount so about 110-120 a day.

    Yeah his hip got messed up. Idk if you could tell, but one of those replays showed that his right leg bended like completely sideways and backwards. I'm sure he either broke it or dislocated it with some muscle and ligament damage

    Separated pelvis according to espn. His brother had surgery for a heart contusion.

    Caleb Moore, the guy who wrecked his snowmobile in the image above suffered a heart contusion and had surgery to repair it. But now it has caused complications in his brain. No other information on that but it sounds like his career is over, if not life. Crazy to think that all this has happened and he walked it off after lying on the ground for about 10 minutes unconscious

    How's the snow? I will be skiing down Beaver Creek the first weekend in March. I'm ecstatic considering I haven't skied in 2 years.

    The snow was okay nothing great, but the day we left Beaver got 10 inches with more snow expected in the coming weeks. We skied Beaver on our way back and had a great time. Enjoy it!
