X Games Aspen 2016, Let the Games Begin!

Aspen Events, Events

Winter X Games Aspen becomes bigger and bigger every year. And this month’s event will not only feature top snow sports athletes, but will also present four unique festival villages and performances by renowned musical artists. All sport competitions are free, so why wouldn’t you go to Buttermilk to watch the action—it’s nothing like watching on TV.

Go Free, Go VIP

X Games Aspen 2016 offers free admission to all sporting events; this means, you can watch the biggest names in freestyle skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling compete without paying a dime.

But, if you want the ultra luxe X Games Aspen experience, splurge on the 4-day Platinum Pass. Platinum Pass holders receive the ultimate VIP treatment. With this pass, you can look forward to watching the action from the SuperPipe control tower; enjoying complimentary beer, wine, spirits, and catered food; and dancing in the music preferred section for all concerts.

If your main X Games interest is the musical performances, you can access all 4 shows with the All Music Pass. At only $150, this pass is a steal, since you’ll get to see Nas, Run the Jewels, Twenty One Pilots, DJ Snake, deadmau5, and Kygo. That’s less than $40 per show!

You can also buy a Saturday Music Pass to see two shows—DJ Snake and deadmau5—or you can buy single tickets. Prices vary by show.

The Sound Factory festival village is the place to see all concerts.

Like we mentioned, this year’s Winter X Games Aspen will feature four unique festival villages—one being the Sound Factory, home to all musical performances. The other three are Galleria, Playground, and Gaming Shack. At each village, you can buy food and drinks, catch live music, play Xbox Halo 5, get your gear signed by athletes, and snag X Games giveaways.
