Must List

Watch Next X

We just got back from catching some of the Winter X Games 15 and, boy, did we have a blast! Still on an adrenaline kick, we wanted to share some deets on the next installment of Disney XD’s Winter Next X, part of the Next X series of sports reality shows developed in association with ESPN, which premieres today at 4 p.m. ET/PT.
Watch as pro snowboarder Danny Kass and pro skier Sarah Burke take on the challenge of training Birk, Nik, Sasha, and Redmond, four extremely talented teen amateurs. They’ll be mastering new tricks and skills but, in the end, only one will become the Winter Next X.
So what kind of competition are we looking at exactly? Let’s meet these kids and look at some of their highlights.
