No X Games Street?
I understand the target audience does not care for rails and this event caters to them. But I find it quite depressing that they neglected such an integral core to snowboarding. How do you guys feel about this?

I love me some rail action, but it did come across as a bit lame.
I don't think it should be a scored comp. Just chuck some gnarly rails downtown Aspen and have a jam for fun, maybe a simple best trick comp so the riders can show off their creative stuff.

it's about the ratings and how it will play for the tv it's Street, which belongs in the natural unnatural setting, when you bring it to that uniform controlled setting of a contest it becomes a big yawnfest

I like seeing it live, but on TV it was really boring.

Not enough time for all the spins otherwise.

Did u guys notice how those girls in half pipe just grab their knee everytime? I mean why even bother.

They are way better at snowboarding than me but their grabs are whack.
