Not too long ago I made a thread asking for help to create a timeline of the winning tricks from X Games Ski Big Air.

http://www.newschoolers.com/forum/thread/786594/X-Games-big-air-winners-over-the-years--

Of course NS delivered and I got a pretty good response and a lot more information than I expected.

After finding all of the videos I can now make the timeline.

So here it is!

Below were judged best score out of 3 jumps.

1999 - JF Cusson // switch right 720.

2000 - Candide Thovex // D Spin 900 Iron Cross.

(couldn't find a video but you can read up about it here http://espn.go.com/extreme/winterx00/s/skibigair0206.html and if you know of a video post a link in the comments)

2001 - Tanner Hall // switch rodeo 720 tail.

Now, to my knowledge (correct me if I'm wrong) Big Air was not an official event at the X Games for the next 6 years except for 2006 when Slopestyle got cancelled so they decided to run a Big Air event at the last minute. Although the event was actually called "best trick" I'm still going to add it to the timeline.

2006 - TJ Schiller // switch 1080 high mute.

(couldn't find a video but you can read up about it here http://www.schillmania.com/content/entries/2006/01/tj-schiller-us-open/ and if you know of a video post the link in the comments)

Below were judged by viewer text in voting.

2008 - Jon Olsson // double flat 900 japan (more commonly known as the Kangaroo Flip).

What are your thoughts on how the event overall (e.g course, judging system, style/fashion) has progressed/changed over the years?
