January 17, 2013
If Aspen wants to continue to host the X Games after 2014, it will have some competition.
Officials at ESPN, which stages the X Games, have been taking requests for proposals from North American cities wishing to host the winter X Games for a three-year period (2015-17), and there are three cities besides Aspen that submitted a RFP.
The cities that have met ESPN’s initial qualification guidelines and have chosen to be identified as potential hosts for the winter event are Lake Tahoe; Park City; and Quebec City, Canada.
