Shaun White brings you to the X Games, but there is plenty more see.

The 2013 Winter X Games have a wide array of intriguing competitions and plenty to grab your attention. Though it might be a little confusing and hard to follow with all of the action going on.

With an event so big and stretching for multiple days it’s hard to keep track of when and where everything is going down. But you don’t need to worry about that, we’ve got a breakdown of where and when to watch the top events that you won’t want to miss this weekend.

Take a look at where you can find White and the biggest names in the sport in Aspen.

The men’s snowboard SuperPipe Final is the signature event of the games. Unsurprisingly it’s also White’s signature event, too.

“The Flying Tomato” already has the record, winning five-straight golds in the event, but he is primed to add a sixth with another win in Aspen on Sunday night.

Will it be White? Or, will one of the younger guns step up and steal the spotlight from the heavily favored and most well-known snowboarder in the sport?
