While we await the results, you can catch up with all of last year's action in this highlight reel. Only fluent French-speakers will be able to follow the commentary, but Iouri Podlatchikov's pipe run near the end (featuring the double McTwist 1260) is awesome in any language.
I-Pod will be looking to defend his crown against a world-class field that features local hero Mathieu Crepel, Austria's Cristian Haller, and Yank brothers Jack and Luke Mitrani. He'll also have to face TTR champ Peetu Piiroinen, looking for his first ever X-Games podium.
The UK is represented by defending halfpipe champion Jenny Jones as well as Jamie Nicholls, who will compete in the slopestyle against the likes of Marko Grilc, Chas Gulemond, and the ubiquitous Peetu. We'll have the results as they come in.
