    Winter X Games Aspen 2013 will kick off January 24 and will have 20 hours of live  coverage on ESPN and live coverage on ABC.

    Among the events this year at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colo. will be Snowmobile Freestyle, Snowmobile Speed and Style, Snocross and Snowmobile Best Trick.

    This year's event will include a comeback from Tucker Hibbert. Hibbert will be competing for his six-peat gold medal in snocross. This will be his 13th appearance at the event.  

    Snocross was not part of last year's competitions.

    Another comeback will be freestyle and snocross racer Levi LaVallee.

    LaVallee pulled out of the competition last year, days before the event, because of a training incident during preparation for X Games.

    LaVallee, a winner of 4 X Games gold medals, attempted a Double Backflip in the 2009 games.

    Here is a schedule of where to catch this snowmobile high-flying action:
