X Games has been Cancelled logo

We are sad to write that the very popular X Games franchise will not be returning to Europe this winter season. Since 2011, Tignes has hosted the popular freestyle ski and snowboard event. Tignes is part of the same ski area as Val d’Isère, and was enjoyed by skiers in both resorts in March each year.

ESPN released a statement saying "we are proud to have run world-class competitions for both the athletes and spectators; however the overall economics of these events do not provide a sustainable future path."

X Games will continue to run their events in LA, Texas and Aspen, but unfortunately they will no longer be making the journey over the Atlantic.

There are still a number of smaller freestyle events for guests to enjoy during the season in Val d’Isère: so you will still be able to get your fix of triple cork 1440s, and switch double cork 1260’s
