chubbspetersonits gonna be combined into skiers and snowboarders together before you get a girls category. next couple of years
it sucks but it's likely the budget/engagement ratio is high enough for the big suites running X-games to dedicate money and coverage for a Women's category, that being said I definitely hope they'll continue to feature woman shredders alongside the dudes which will hopefully get more women into the sport or at least hitting street.
has a good point too; combining skiers and snowboarders into one real snow event would definitely create a lot of space to feature women- and truth be told I'd love to be able to watch both street skiing and snowboarding in one event but I'm not sure how judging could even be done. There's even more chicks shredding on snowboards than skis too so would definitely add a lot to the pool of eligible athletes but I think making logistics work would be an incredible pain in the ass.
idk, theres a lot about X-games events that I would change but I think in the end there's only so many resources that can be dedicated to them so I understand why things don't always work out.
