    X Games will return to Aspen Snowmass Jan. 26-29, 2017, inviting the top ski, snowboard and snowmobile athletes to compete in 18 different disciplines over four days. Snowmobile Best Trick will return to the lineup for the first time since 2013, while Snow Bike racing is set to make its X Games debut. After successful competitions at X Games Oslo 2016, X Games will host Women’s Ski and Snowboard Big Air finals for the first time in Aspen. This marks the first time Women’s Ski Big Air will be held at a domestic X Games event. Women’s Snowboard Big Air was held from 1997 to 2001.

    X Games Aspen will also feature musical performances – in chronological order – by Bassnectar, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, The Chainsmokers and G-Eazy. While admission to the action sports competitions and festival village are free to the public, X Games musical performances will require purchase of a ticket. Music fans can purchase an All-Music pass for $125, which will include general admission to all four performances. A limited number of preferred All-Music passes are available for $175, which include preferred viewing, a private entrance to the concert venue, dedicated preferred restrooms and cash bar.
