XGames2

Tune into World of X Games this Sunday, February 22 for a double feature premiering both “Good Company with Tom Wallisch” and “Winter Stories with James Woods and Kaitlyn Farrington” beginning at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT on ESPN2.

World of X Games will kick off with “Good Company with Tom Wallisch,” a follow-up to last year’s critically-acclaimed “The Wallisch Project”. This next installment in Wallisch’s ski projects expands the film to include a group of like-minded skiers, filmers and friends who all contribute their love for skiing and traveling. The project will follow this group of skiers through various types of terrain and showcase their deep bag of tricks during an action-packed 30 minutes of skiing’s best. Additionally, the show takes Wallisch back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, Penn., where friends and family share personal anecdotes throughout his career.

The second World of X Games feature, “Winter Stories with James Woods and Kaitlyn Farrington” will begin at 11:30 p.m. ET, documenting the rise of two unlikely athletes to action sports stardom. James “Woodsy” Woods’ story chronicles his ascension from the artificial dry slopes of Sheffield, Great Britain to winning an X Games Ski Slopestyle bronze as a rookie in 2013. The episode continues with snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington’s highs and lows through the 2014/15 season experiencing elation atop the Winter Olympic podium, and then devastation in learning that would be the final competitive snowboard run of her short but storied career.
