X Games continued this morning in Aspen, Colorado with Men's Ski Slopestyle Elimination, where an impressively deep field of the 16 best slopestyle skiers in the world was narrowed down to eight after a hard fought battle on the next level slopestyle course.

Unfortunately missing the cut today was PK Hunder, Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, Jossi Wells, Noah Morrison, McRae Williams, Matt Walker, Gus Kenworthy, and to the shock of nearly everyone in attendance (although he is currently sporting a bad knee), Tom Wallisch.

On the other side of the bubble, Alex Schlopy, Nick Goepper, Joss Christensen, Henrik Harlaut, Bobby Brown, Alex Bellemare, Andreas Håtveit and James 'Woodsy' Woods claimed the eight coveted spots in Sunday's Slopestyle Finals, and in the event that you missed it on TV, here's a look at their runs, followed by the full results and the second installment of our behind the scenes video coverage...
