Adaptive Action Sports brought adaptive snowboarding to the X Games Snowboarder X course in 2011 and 2012. Snowboarder X was not contested in 2013. Its return in 2014 conflicted with an International Paralympic Committee World Cup race, but Purdy says she hopes to bring her sport back to the X Games in 2015.
