Think of Munich and it's likely that lederhosen and giant beer mugs come to mind. But by hosting the X Games for the next three years, the home of Oktoberfest also seeks to be known as Germany's premiere action-sports city. The first X competitions sold out immediately and you can feel the anticipation as the event draws near. Although skateboards and bikes will be the focus next week, let's not forget about another sport that has chosen Munich as its German capital: snowboarding.
