Big congrats to Nic Sauvé for claiming the first-ever X Games Snowboard Street Gold Medal at this year’s Winter X in Aspen, Colorado. Leading up to this live rail jam component of the “Real Snow” series, eight snowboarders submitted a 60-second video part each, showcasing the best of their urban riding skills. Not only did Nic win Fan’s Choice beating out JP Walker in the final round, but he was also awarded the Bronze Medal by a panel of industry pros.

“Winning Fan’s Choice means a lot,” says Sauvé. “Getting kids hyped is what matters the most to me, so it looks like we succeeded! I’m glad to see this underground side of snowboarding brought forward to a broader audience, and I’m looking forward for the next edition of Real Snow!”
