An interesting take on the "urban" scene. Would of liked to see a bit more variety in the riders, but could turn out to be an interesting event. Check out the latest X-Games event- Real Snow.
Following the success of August's Real Street, the first video-only contest at X Games, the "Real" series returns for its winter debut. For Real Snow, eight snowboarders will submit a 60-second exclusive video part filmed on urban terrain. The videos will be judged by a panel of industry pros. One winner who presents the best overall impression will be awarded a Winter X Games gold medal and $50,000. In addition, all the videos will be shown as part of the WX15 telecast on Jan. 29. In Aspen, all eight Real Snow athletes will come together for Snowboard Street, a jam session with a street set-up, where the medalists will be announced.
On Jan. 12, all eight video parts will drop right here, and you'll be able to begin voting -- tournament-style, in brackets -- for your favorite part. Winner of the fan favorite will be awarded $2,500.
So who's throwing down? Meet the riders in the inaugural Winter X Games Real Snow event, and stay tuned for the event teaser video to drop Dec. 15.
