In a move that's sure to get die-hard locals frantically hitting refresh, X Games has expanded their exciting Real series to resorts, pitting seven against each other in a video contest for ski area supremacy.
Here's how the first-ever X Games Real Mountain works: all of the footage in these videos needed to be shot over the course of last season, and feature only in-bounds terrain / zones you can get to from the top of a lift, along with resort-sponsored athletes who ride and ski each resort on a regular basis. And to make it even more interesting, only natural terrain features were allowed... so no snowcat-made jumps.
The winner will be decided by the public via online voting, which you can do by clicking here. Only one vote per browser in a 24-hour period is permitted, so be sure to vote regularly to show your support for your favourite resort. Voting will end at 9 a.m. PST on November 13th, and the resort with the most votes will score themselves an X Games gold medal.
