Comp season is in full swing and we’re beyond stoked that X Games decided to move the Norway stop up to Hafjell Aplinsenter again, which is located next to the idyllic village of Lillehammer. The last couple of years, the Norwegian edition to our favourite games has been located in Oslo during the warm months of spring and summer, making it hard to keep the massive jump from melting. This year, however, the comp has been moved back up to the snowy hills of Hafjell, where it was last held in 2017.

After the raging success of the Knuckle Huck comp in Aspen, we’re stoked that they’re bringing this concept up North too. For the ones who missed out on this the first time around, do yourself a favour and have a look at what to expect from the Knuckle Huck. The return of the Knuckle might simply imply that we’re hungry for some more creativity in the midst of all the spinning.
In addition to the Knuckle Huck, you can also expect the fan favourites Slopestyle and Big Air comps to be as epic as ever. There’s a pretty solid crew of riders attending the X Games games this year, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll bring to the table this time around.
Check out what riders to expect, followed by the artists and full schedule for this year’s event. You definitely do not want to miss out on this, so make sure to book your tickets now: X Games Norway, from 7th to the 8th of March!
