The X-Games Pay Tribute To Sarah Burke (Video)

sarah burkeThousands of people, both athletes and fans, have made their way to Aspen for the start of the 2012 Winter X-Games.  Many of them have brought their heavy hearts along with them following the tragic death of Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke.

Burke passed away on January 19th of this year following a tragic accident while training for the X-Games on the Park City Mountain Resort Eagle superpipe in Park City, Utah.  She will always be considered a pioneer for superpipe skiing (she helped make it an Olympic event, beginning in 2014) and was beloved by all of her fellow competitors.

Many of those competitors, along with family, friends and fans of Sarah, took to the slopes last night to honor the passing of one of the most influential women to ever take part in the X-Games.  You can watch the ceremony in the video below.
