Winter is approaching and with it, exciting events for winter sports enthusiasts await once again: from the X Games Aspen with all-new signs to the Freeride World Tour with its new stations to events to participate in such as vintage skiing festivals, ski touring tests in Austria and much more.

2023 X Games Aspen

When: January 27 - 29, 2023

Where: Aspen (USA)

At the end of October 2022, there was a big bang at X Games: The action sports organizer has new owners and a new CEO in Steven Flisler. How will he change the face of the X Games? There should be a foretaste at X Games Aspen from January 27-29, 2023. What remains the same: Freestyle fans will also be able to watch the stars of the scene in Aspen in 2023 completely free of charge. Almost 100 of the best winter sports athletes will be at the start.
