Top Events to Watch

Men's Snowboard SlopeStyle Final

Two-time defending champ Mark McMorris is back, and the young Canadian looks ready to claim his fourth career Winter X gold medal. 

After a lackluster opening run, McMorris flashed his skills in his second run of the elimination round. With the pressure on, the 20-year-old ripped off a flawless frontside double-cork, a double wildcat and a remarkably easy-looking double-cork 1080. 

The run earned him a 92.00, good for second place in the qualifying round.

Finishing first was Norwegian Torstein Horgmo, who came away with a 93.33. Horgmo took seventh in last year's event. 

Other riders to watch for in Saturday's final include Ståle Sandbech, Chas Guldemond and Sebastien Toutant.

Kelly Clark will be looking to win her fourth consecutive gold in the Women's Snowboard SuperPipe Final on Saturday.

The 30-year-old American has dominated the event in recent years, earning a medal every year since 2008. She also took home gold in 2006 and silver in 2004.

The biggest threat to her four-peat will likely be fellow American Elena Hight. Hight became the first rider ever—male or female—to land a backside double alley-oop rodeo in competition last year. However, Hight ended up losing out on gold by just three-tenths of a point. 

Also making headlines in this event is Gretchen Bleiler. As ESPN's Colin Bane reported, this will be the last competitive event of Bleiler's historic career. 

"It definitely makes me sad," Bleiler, 32, said at the X Games Aspen 2014 opening news conference. "I've grown up through the X Games, and it's like a chapter in my life is ending. But I'm so grateful I've had such a long career filled with amazing friends and memories."

Bleiler won SuperPipe gold in 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2010. 

Other women to watch include last year's bronze medalist Arielle Gold, as well as Spaniard Queralt Castellet and 2011 silver medalist Kaitlyn Farrington.
