Chris Burandt is a great all-around snowmobiler. In addition to competing in Long Jump and HillCross at X Games Aspen 2015, Burandt also will serve as the on-air television analyst for the X Games Snowmobile events. The backcountry-riding specialist owns a snowmobile riding business in Colorado and is a two-time X Games medalist: He won the inaugural Snowmobile Freestyle event at X Games.
