Tonight (1/25/18) kicks off Winter X-Games held in Aspen, CO which will run until 1/28/18. If you aren’t familiar this event is one of the highlights each winter for competitive freestyle skiing and snowboarding. Each year showcases death-defying stunts, tricks, spins, and flips–it is not unusual to witness a trick that has never been landed before. If you have any interest in freestyle skiing and snowboarding, or just need to kill a few hours over the weekend, here is the T.V. viewing schedule.

For those who may not be familiar with some of the athletes competing, the Zimmermanns crew has helped break down athletes to keep an eye on during the competition. Bear in mind, these are NOT predictions of who we think will win, mostly because the Olympics are right around the corner and some athletes have already qualified for the Olympics and may be saving themselves, or just competing mildly and trying to avoid injury. Stay tuned with Zimmermanns on Facebook because we will be posting our Olympic medal projections, and we may just offer a prize for anyone who can predict the podium better than we can.
