Winter X Games 2012 in Aspen (Yeah, it's Siiiick)

Winter X Games 2012 Aspen, Colorado.Winter X Games 16 in Aspen kicks off today.  We're not sure, but it's possibly the final X Games in Aspen.  The billion dollar contract between Aspen / Snowmass and ESPN will expire after this years games.  Negotiations are on-going, but it's unclear where Aspen stands on the hierchy of cities viying to host 100,000 + action sports fans and create the infrastructure to hold the events.  Not being privy to the negotiations, it's impossible to predict the outcome...but if they were sticking around...wouldn't they have announced something at the press conference (like they have in the past). 

Has X Games out grown Aspen? It's possible. So with that uncertainty and the pall left by the recent loss of skier and friend to all, Sarah Burke hanging in the air X Games 16 begins now.
