Returning champions and new faces could pepper the podiums at X Games Aspen this year. Here's your guide to tuning in.

Snowmobile Freestyle Final: Thursday, Jan. 23, 9 p.m.-11 p.m., ESPN

After defending gold medalist Levi LaVallee withdrew from Snowmobile Freestyle because of a nagging shoulder injury, the first medal event of X Games Aspen is wide open. Any of the competitors could take home gold, including Joe Parsons, Justin Hoyer, Daniel Bodin, Cory Davis and Colten Moore. Also watch for a tribute to Colten's brother Caleb, who died after injuries sustained in last year's event.
