Shaun White returned to Breckenridge, the site of his Winter Dew Tour SuperPipe win last month, to prepare for this weekend's X Games in Aspen. Shaun has been enjoying the sun, the new snow and hitting the air bags.

He's taken some time to have fun with friends, check out Vail and really hone his craft in Breck's park and pipe. Practice has been going smoothly and Shaun has been riding a ton to get ready for what should be an awesome time in Aspen for X Games.

Here are a few photos from Shaun's time in Colorado leading up to X Games...

Shaun and Burton teammate Mikkel Bang had the chance to ride some powder at Vail. When did Mikkel get so tall?
