So the Winter X Games are back for another year, starting from.... now! The boardercross qualifiers start tonight at 7pm UK time and by one in the morning the halfpipe comp will be under way.

Yes, it is the usual rigmarole of figuring out the time differences, where to watch it and if you should really be staying up that late, but for those of you like us who are mad keen for it we've published the snowboarding timetable in good old-fashioned GMT below.

If your telly isn't signed up to the relevant services, you can purchase a one-off pass to watch all the X Games live stream coverage from ESPN here.
