NOTE: Due to space constraints at Rhodes Skate Park, there will be limited areas for media members to capture photos and video of X Games athletes during practices only. For this reason, we will be limiting each news outlet to two press passes (good for both days). Journalists covering the event will need to check in with Boise Parks and Recreation Communications Manager Bonnie Shelton upon arrival at the park on Thursday to receive their press passes for the event. If you plan to send different crews, please acknowledge it when you submit your media coverage agreements. We need names and signed agreements for each journalist assigned to cover the event.
