The X Games have made it a point since its founding to stage an eco-friendly event.
Such measures include using biodiesel fuel in their vehicles and organizing recycling campaigns.
In May 2011, ESPN held a bid to select three host cities in addition to Los Angeles, Aspen, and Tignes, France, to form a six-event calendar for the next three years beginning in 2013.
In 1998, the attendance dropped to 25,000 spectators.
But just two years later, a record attendance of 83,500 people attended the Winter X Games' East Coast debut.
To accommodate the first-time live coverage, nighttime competitions were added, resulting in record attendance for the Aspen/Snowmass venue.
The 2002 Winter X Games was a huge year for ESPN and the X Games.
