The 2014 Aspen X Games is fast approaching, which means it’s time agin for this – the now annual Real Snow contest. If you haven’t seen this before, here’s the score: Eight of the world’s top jibbers are invited to submit a minute long video. 

This year, the chosen ones are Dan Brisse, Bode Merrill, Eiki Helgason, Forest Bailey, Frank April, Dylan Thompson, Louis-Felix Paradis, and Jaeger Bailey.

A team of judges watches all the videos and during the X Games, hand out gold, silver and bronze medals to the top three.

But that’s not all. There’s also an award for a “Fan Favourite”. The riders’ names are also drawn from a hat, and their movies then go head to head in a squash-ladder-style contest, with the results of each round being decided by online voting.

Oh and these days there’s actually a jib jam at the games as well with more medals up for grabs, but we’ll forget about that for the minute ‘cos it merely over-complicates matters.

What you really want to know (let’s face it) is what’s in the videos, and who we think will win right? So let’s go – here they are, round by round, with our predictions.
