Winter X-Games brings a whole new look at snowboarding. Check out REAL SNOW

Following the success of the Summer X-Games Real Street, the first video-only contest at X Games, the "Real" series returns for its winter debut. For Real Snow, eight snowboarders will submit a 60-second exclusive video part filmed on urban terrain. The videos will be judged by a panel of industry pros. One winner who presents the best overall impression will be awarded a Winter X-Games gold medal and $50,000. In addition, all the videos will be shown as part of the WX15 telecast on January 29. In Aspen, all eight Real Snow athletes will come together for Snowboard Street, a jam session with a street set-up, where the medalists will be announced.

On January 12, all eight video parts will drop right here, and you'll be able to begin voting- tournament-style, in brackets- for your favorite part. Winner of the fan favorite will be awarded $2,500.

Out of the 8 competitors for Real Snow, 3 of the selected are Nixon Team riders:
JP Walker
Jeremy Jones
Joe Sexton
