Bundle up, Faction Talk (Ch. 103) fans — Jason Ellis is redefining “Big Air” as The Jason Ellis Show broadcasts from a very special, very extreme locale this week. Catch Ellis’ show LIVE from the Winter X Games Aspen tonight, January 24 from 5pm to 8pm ET.
Ellis will be hitting the mountain with Dingo, Tully, and Kevin to interview some of the world’s best action sports athletes, including Axell Hodges, Ståle Sandbech, Scotty James, Red Gerard, Danny Davis, and Elliot Sloan tonight.
When it comes to the X Games, Ellis is a seasoned pro from both a host and a competitor standpoint. With his history of competing in Skateboard Big Air, Vert, and Vert Doubles categories six times between 1997 and 2007, it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about the games. Combine that with his candid, irreverent hosting style and this coverage is sure to stick the landing.
As a bonus, Ellis presented the medal for the Pacifico Women’s Snowboard Big Air Final last night. This year’s heat marked a particularly exciting time for fans and athletes, as five-time gold medalist Chloe Kim missed the competition for the first time since 2014, leaving an opening for Miyabi Onitsuka‘s impressive victory (which resulted in an all-Japanese podium — rounded out by Kokomo Murase and Reira Iwabuchi taking silver and bronze, respectively).
