The X-Games drops in on Europe - Tignes, France to be specific - on March 10-12 2010 and construction's already underway.

The slopestyle and pipe will be held in Val Claret, by the Les Lanches lift for those who know the hood, and as you can see they're already digging the ditch and building what looks like a mini Oktoberfest tent on site.


Admission to check the action will be free and as for what goes down when... here ya go:


We've also got the latest invited riders list, with more names to be added over the coming weeks. We just heard a rumour that our boy Tyler Chorlton has just unwrapped a candy bar and found himself a golden ticket to the slopestyle too (that's how they do it, right?), so things look to be shaping up nicely...
