Aspen's Winter X Games are on...the 17th year of ESPN's crazy on snow superpipe and slopestyle bash at Aspen's Buttermilk.
But don’t tune in to see the exciting skier and snowboarder cross events - those have been cut from the racy, rowdy program. Maine's Gold Medalist Seth Wescot won't be attending since his best event has been removed from the roster. He and other SBX and Skier X atheltes like Daron Rahlves are setting their sights on the WInter Olympics in Sochi Russia!
Tune in teh ESPN this weekend to see Maine's Simon Dumont skiing, Vermont snowboard gals Kelly Clark and Hannah Teter, and Shaun White riding the super pipe, he was practicing his triple cork 1440 at Aspen earlier this week.
