- X Games
By earning his second gold of Aspen 2020, rookie skier Colby Stevenson — who also won Ski Knuckle Huck on Thursday night at X — became the first rookie in history to win two gold at an X Games. He’s also the first rookie ever to win Ski Slopestyle. Entering XG Aspen 2020, 19 Ski Slopestyle Finals had been contested since 2002, and not a single gold went to a rookie. Twentieth time’s the charm.
Stevenson was the most consistent and creative of the comp. His runs were defined, his grabs were perfect and he used both sides of the shark fin. His best trick of the comp was the double cork 1440 Cuban (Run 1, Jump 3)
At X Games Aspen 2020, Stevenson was on top all weekend. He also finished first in the Elimination. Only four times has the first-place finisher from the Elim gone on to strike gold, and 18 of 20 X Games Slopestyle contests have had an Elimination. Before Stevenson, the last to do it was Andreas Hatveit in 2008 (Tanner Hall and Charles Gagnier also did it).
The 22-year-old is a 2015 graduate of the Winter Sports School in Park City.
