Shaun White returned to [R77R, Breckenridge], the site of his Winter Dew Tour SuperPipe win last month, to prepare for this weekend's X Games in [R25R, 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 [R482R, 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?
