ESPN has announced they’ll be dropping the Snowboarder X and Skier X events from Winter X Games. Snowboarder X has been in every Winter X Games since the event started in 1997.
“These decisions are never easy, obviously,” said Tim Reed, senior director of content strategy for ESPN X Games. “We understand the ramifications these things bring. We come up with what we believe are the best events to showcase to our fans on-site and obviously the networks, too.”
