X Games Real Snow 2017

Aspen and Norway have been and gone, but now comes the time of the digital X Games comp, set on real mean streets all around the world.

Six parts are playing for your vote this year, with only one Euro in the bunch (tear), but no mind, there are plenty of bangers to be watched here. Jesse Paul, Justin Fronius, Toni Kerkelä, Frank Bourgeois, Anto Chamberland and Dylan Thompson all doing their best to impress.

When you’re done, you’ll find you can vote for your favourite once a day here, with Fan Favourite voting ending 26th of March, being announced on the 27th, and official judged results dished out on the 25th.


With a few years of Real Snow already under his belt, Dylan Thompson‘s honed the art of finding burly spots and making them look small fry. Plenty to gawp at here, albeit slightly less tech than some other offerings this year.


Gut wrenching intro from the only Euro in the mix this year, who got taco’d horribly and lost his board hook up in the same month. Toni Kerkelä turns things up anyway though! Miller flipping bridges and throwing one-footers in the mix, with a ridiculously tight hardway gap to steep downrail to end.


Some seriously smooth moves from Justin Fronius, working the magic with a tasty ledge to wallride feature and a mad u-bend of an ender.


Urrrgh. Gnar, thy name is Frank Bourgeois. From super steep rainbow rails to huge urban gaps, to stylee back noseblunts, to a nuts rodeo to front board ender. We could continue, but you’d be better of watching.


Anto Chamberland poaches lines at the water park, saws off his tail and gaps up and over a spiked fence for your votes in his Real Snow entry. Watch the Quebecois at work and tell us he doesn’t deserve a podium spot.


King of the nbd and unusual, Jesse Paul blasts out of a stairwell to get his ’17 X Games entry started. Bonkers till the end with triple rail transfers, Scott Stevens style natas spin to rails, and a chain breaking ender that’d stop Fleetwood Mac mid song.
