Men’s slopestyle has a storied history at X Games Aspen, rife with insane multi-access trick advancements mid-competition, last run/last second landings that result in gold medals, and a roster of riders whose skill on their snowboards and awareness in the air is fully mental. For 2017, X Games brought back the qualifying round pre-slope finals and fifteen of the most rock steady snowboarders in the game lined up to jump their way into Sundays contest. SNOWBOARDER will be bringing you full video and photo coverage from men’s finals on Sunday.
