X Games will return to Aspen
Aspen, Colorado, (January 25-January 28, 2007)-The annual Winter
X Games is the premier winter action sports event in the world, featuring
athletes from across the globe competing for medals and prize money in the
following sports: Ski, Snowboard and Snowmobile. Winter X Games 11 will
feature nighttime events and will be telecast live on ESPN and ABC.
Winter X Games VIII
in 2004 marked the first time that an X Games event was televised live
and also featured coverage by ESPN's flagship news program, Sports Center.
Viewership across the three networks that carried coverage of the event
- ABC Sports, ESPN and ESPN2 – exceeded last year's household average
by 30% according to Nielsen Media Research. The event also reached record
highs in several major demographic categories. To accommodate the first-time
live coverage, nighttime competitions were added, resulting in record
attendance for the Aspen/Snowmass venue.
Announced last year,
Winter X Games will remain in Aspen/Snowmass through Winter X Games 14
in 2010 - an unprecedented NINE-YEAR STINT at one venue!
