X Games Aspen 2013 not only saw the first triple corks thrown in competition, in Big Air finals two snowboarders (Sandbech and Smits) landed the trick for the first time, and Torstein Horgmo and Mark McMorris landed two brand new triple variations. Freeskiers also landed their first triples in X Games history during the Ski Big Air finals. Henrik Harlaut won gold with a perfect-scoring nose butter triple cork 1620.
