Having been to the X Games in 2003 I had known what I would be in for; the 'snowskate park' at the X Games is a small, fenced off, petting zoo-esque, sideshow that provides a very poor perspective on snowskating to passers by. I made a bi-deck with low trucks and a fat short subdeck with no sidecut so it would be stable at low speeds and ride straight. I pulled the board out of the press the morning I left so I didn't have a chance to test it, when we got there after much road drama Shag and Spico were not impressed with the park but I wasn't surprised. The course was small as expected but the event was a lot of fun, single and bideck competed together and I ended up getting second. I also broke a truck on my mountain snowskate while at Copper and ended up riding the x games park board and it was a ton of fun.
