Once again, as has become tradition at Winter X Games, performance boundaries were broken and the tricktionary was expanded; records were set and new names burst onto the scene. Thick in the historic happenings and memorable moments were our Oakley winter athletes, leading the charge for where their respective sports will be going in the coming years. For the sixth consecutive year it was Shaun White who put the exclamation point on another phenomenal Winter X. A dominating performance in the Superpipe, highlighted by a record 24.1-foot air, resulted in his sixth consecutive Gold Medal in the event and his 23rd X Games medal overall.
