Winter X Games 12 – to be held January 24-27, 2008 in Aspen/Snowmass, Colo., and aired live on ESPN and ABC– will feature new events, a new stage and enhanced coverage across ESPN platforms. Three new disciplines will make their debut – Snowmobile Speed & Style, Skiing Big Air, and Snowboard Big Air. Fifteen hours of live programming on ESPN and ABC will be offered as well as Winter X Games 12 coverage on ESPN International, EXPN.com, ESPN360, SportsCenter andESPN2's X Center.

Modeled after Winter X mainstays Snowmobile SnoCross and Snowmobile Freestyle, Snowmobile Speed & Style combines the air of Freestyle and the speed of SnoCross in to one discipline. Competitors will go head to head around the course hitting multiple jumps and obstacles. Final scores will be based on difficulty of tricks pulled and amount of time racers take to ride around the full track.

Big Air contests have also been added to the Winter X pillars of Skiing and Snowboard. Featuring only four competitors in each contest, the scoring of every run will be fan interactive: 50% of each competitor's score will come from live fan text voting and the second half will be judged by the analysts calling the competitions live on TV.

"As the Winter X Games always looks to follow the athletes in the progression of their sports, we are excited to introduce these new disciplines to our prime time telecasts this year and look forward to building on the interactive text voting success we had with skateboarding at the X Games" said Ron Semiao, senior vice president, ESPN content development.
