European Winter X Games 2 kicked off with a pounding of snow from the heavens. Mother nature has not been too kind to the French Alps this year with snowfall, but you could not tell from the past few days of continual dumpage here in Tignes, France.
Once again Winter X Games is in the French Alps at Tignes, France. Last night was the beginning of competition and practice for skiing and snowboarding pipe. Check out the photos from snowboard pipe practice.
It’s Europe’s turn. Just more than a month after an absolutely insane Winter X Games 15 in Aspen, Oakley’s power packed roster of shredders is dropping into Tignes, France for Winter X Games Europe March 16-18. With defending Gold Medalists to emerging young leaders in their respective sports, Team Oakley is bringing in a mix of veterans and young guns to the scene. And like 2010’s games, they’ll have a house to call their own to amp up for the action. The Oakley Safehouse will be open for business to serve as the hub for O’s roster – a place for our athletes to recharge and focus on the task at hand: Dominance at the last major contest of this Winter season.
