Check out the crazy looking course Aspen have put on for this year's X Games. They've got some of the most unique jib features we've seen on a slopestyle course to date, plus some actually MONSTER kickers.

The snowboarding kicks off Thursday evening our time with the men's pipe and slope qualifiers. If the recent last round of Sochi 2014 qualifiers are anything to go by then we're going to be in for a treat come the finals this weekend, hopefully with a few sneak previews into some rider's trick bags.

P.S. Sorry for the skiing, but we're in such a good mood with all of the awesome snowboard news today we don't really mind, plus Gus Kenworthy is pretty rad too :)
