The X Games is equivalent to the Super Bowl for Gunny and the SPT crew. One hundred and fifty of the world’s best snow sports athletes compete in the event, which is broadcast live around the world. This year, Tyrone was in charge of building one of the biggest features that SPT has ever been tasked with creating: the Snowboard Street wallride. Chris leads the entire SPT crew in Aspen and assigns Kurt Eppler to take on the snowmobile course, which requires building two courses within the same location. Frank is in his element working on the pipe, and Aaron starts construction of Snowboard Street with Tyrone. But, Corley has been relegated to helping out everyone when needed. The challenges ensue, including bad weather and equipment breakdowns, as well as a ticking clock from the moment they begin fabrication until the last athlete crosses the finish line.
