The Winter X Games 16 is going to be kicking off this weekend and Aspen, Colorado won't be the same. With the standard of freeskiing growing higher and higher as the days go on, we get to see what the riders face. So here's a nice selection of videos with Nick Goepper, Joss Christensen and Sammy Carlson talking about the course and showing us how they'll deal with it.

So that's what they're looking at when the sun goes down and the lights go on in Aspen. It's the first time the slopestyle comp will be under the lights so I'm pretty excited to be seeing it.

Also, after the Winter Dew Tour was so insanely good, the competition between the riders will be fierce!
