2016 Winter X-Games: Day 1 events, times, and TV/webstream schedule
The X-Games return to Aspen for the first of four days that will include high-intensity action sports, live music, family-friendly interactive village entertainment, and much more!
The Special Olympics Unified Snowboarding Final will open the action at 3 p.m. ET. That will be followed by the Snowmobile SnoCross Adaptive Final at 5:30 p.m. ET and the Snowmobile SnoCross Round One & Final at 6 p.m. ET. Last year, adaptive snowmobile rider Mike Schultz crashed, breaking his right heel in 15 places, which required a 5-hour surgery and 11 screws. He was able to return to his snowboard this past month and will be preparing for today’s races.
As per usual, they’re saving the best for last with the Men’s Ski SuperPipe Final set to start at 6 p.m. MT. After a rather disappointing ending to last year’s SuperPipe final, David Wise looks to return to the podium. In a recent interview, Wise plans to “try and spin a different direction on every hit I can.”
Day one ends with performances by Run the Jewels and Nas.
