Have you been wanting to find a new outdoor activity to enjoy with family and friends? There are quite a few sports that you can enjoy throughout the year, such as riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). If you’re looking for something high-performance, snowboarding and snowmobiling are just two options that may be of interest to you.
Extreme Sports and the X Games

The very first X Games were held in 1995, and there were 198,000 people in attendance. Within the next four years in 1999, there were nearly 270,000 people at this event. This was the highest ever attendance recorded for these games, as there were 215,000 attendees during the 2017 games. That is still a significant number of fans, however.
