Full Tilt Holds it Down Strong in XGames RealSki

The most creative X Games Event is Back Again

Back again for yet another year of mind-blowing street skiing, X Games RealSki continues to push the boundaries. With a wide array of talented skiers involved — from Antti’s high-speed strength to Keegan Killbride’s heavy spot check — this year was arguably the best one yet.

And unsurprisingly, Full Tilt is representing strong yet again. Longtime Full Tilt Skiers Phil Casabon and Mike Hornbeck dedicated the first half of their season to RealSki. And their respective segments certainly These two dudes have been at the forefront of urban skiing for over a decade now, and their decisive, creative styling cannot be touched.

Mike Hornbeck:

Holding it down for the Midwest, Mike Hornbeck takes advantage of the industrial areas around his native Michigan. With Techy tip rolls, the infamous nose snaps, and silky smooth style that elevated Hornbeck to the status of “your favorite skier’s favorite skier.” And the whole part is shot by fellow Michigander and talented skier Spencer Milbocker.


Phil Casabon:

But there’s no doubt that Casabon is at the top of his game. With a downtempo track that accentuates the Quebecois shredder’s effortless style, this will certainly be the loudest segment of the crop.

Combining unthinkable tech on some pretty serious features, Phil’s part undoubtedly will have you tracking back to dissect exactly what is going on. Switch Nollie to Switch 5050 on a down rail. Blindswap rail transfers. Rail-to-rail hopping into a double kink. The list goes on and on. It’s almost as if every shot in Phil’s part could be the ender.
