This year's X Games were more about the marquee stars than the individual events.

Few names are bigger than Jamie Anderson when it comes to the Winter X Games, and she added two more golds to her illustrious resume in the women's snowboard slopestyle and women's snowboard big air competitions. As NBC Sports noted, it was the first title in big air for the eight-time X Games victor.

She has seven X Games championships and two Olympic gold medals in slopestyle but turned heads in a loaded big-air field that also featured every 2018 Olympic medalist.

Anderson needs one more Winter X Games medal to tie Mark McMorris' all-time record of 20 and two more golds to tie Lindsey Jacobellis' record on the women's side.

She also became the first woman to compete in the Knuckle Huck contest. While she impressed and made history, she and the rest of the field fell short of victor and X Games rookie Dusty Henricksen.

Henricksen, 17, also won gold in the men's snowboard slopestyle and defeated a field that included Olympic champion Red Gerard.

Another notable Olympic champion thrived, as Chloe Kim won the women's snowboard superpipe for her fifth snowboard halfpipe title in Aspen. NBC Sports noted she is just one win shy of the women's record, which is held by Kelly Clark.

One of Kim's six and one of Clark's seven X Games halfpipe titles came in competition outside of Aspen.

.@ChloeKim age 20, now has 8 #XGames medals overall. She returned to competition this month after taking 21 months off to focus on her first year at Princeton University. https://t.co/8BTEm2cHVP

Making Kim's performance all the more impressive is the fact that she took last year's event off because she was taking freshman classes at Princeton.

Speaking of making history, Eileen Gu won the women's ski superpipe and the women's ski slopestyle while also taking home bronze in the women's ski big air. Her three medals while representing China equaled the country's total in the 26-year history of the X Games, and she called the stretch "the best two days of my life."

Entering #XGames Aspen 2021, athletes representing China had earned 3 medals in the 26-year history of X Games. Eileen Gu’s three podium finishes in her rookie year at XG Aspen doubled that in a single weekend.   She  called it, “The best two days of my life.” https://t.co/JaOlMdFhCl

There was supposed to be something of a grand finale Sunday after so much thrilling competition with Shaun White's return to competitive snowboarding for the first time since the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics in the men's superpipe, but he withdrew after suffering a knee injury in practice.

That spoiled the anticipated showdown between White and Scotty James, although James managed just silver thanks to an impressive showing by gold-medalist Yuto Totsuka.
