Photos from Winter X Games in Aspen

2013 January 031

We had a great weekend at Winter X Games in Aspen. The weather was warm (maybe too warm for conditions, some of the athletes might say), the crowds big and happy, the athletes amazing.

Brita Sigourney, the Swany Gloves-sponsored ski pipe star, skied hard but did not win the Women’s Superpipe. But after winning at Dew Tour and taking third at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain, she’s already had a great season. (On the way for Brita: the next stop in the  Grand Prix tour this weekend in Park City. Good luck, Brita!

Here are some of our favorite images from the weekend.

Looking up from the bottom of the pipe is awe-inspiring.

The weather ranged from cloudy and snowy to brilliant blue skies -- often at the same time.
