It might seem odd to hold a backcountry snowboarding video contest in the midst of a sweltering summer, but Real Snow Backcountry is kind of a big deal so that's what X Games will do when voting opens on July 16.

With the likes of Travis Rice, Pat Moore, Fredi Kalbermatten, Jussi Oksanen, Mark Carter, Mikey Rencz, Mark Landvik and Andreas Wiig set to duke it out you can bet your bottom dollar that these will be HEAVY.
