I remember some years ago when slopestyle was under lights (I think it was practice not the event).
Would you rather see slope during the night or day. Big air seems to have huge hype under the lights. Discuss

GolfingElephantSlopestyle under the lights at X Games was one of my favorite years. Its seems like it would be advantageous for the guys since theres no possibility for flat light. Cloudy night skies are still black. It has to be an absolute bear to set up and tear down though. I'm guessing the extra cost of setup, equipment and manpower don't offset the viewership gains from the time slot.
KaneDogI remember an interview with Tanner where he said he liked the night contests because it allowed him to sneak off into the woods and light up a fatty between runs. So that's something to think about.
theabortionatorThey also need something in the day. There aren't as many event in winter X. Big air and superpipe have been the big nightime ones.
weedooThere wouldn’t be a chance you have the link to that interview? Thats something I gotta listen to lol
