A look back at Shaun White’s dominance in X Games snowboarding since 1997.
Shaun White’s tomahawk: How he names his tricks
In this “CBS This Morning” Extra, snowboarder and skateboarder Shaun White talks about his unique and food-related process of naming his gravity-defying, medal-winning snowboarding moves.

No skateboarding for Shaun White in 2013
I personally LOVE the haircut!!! I think it makes him look more mature and handsome.

For the first time ever the Grand Prix will be a five star TTR event, so look for riders to earn valuable TTR ranking points in both halfpipe and slopestyle. This event is also being used for Olympic qualifications so it will offer a great chance to see which riders are looking to seal their tickets to Russia.
For the men you can expect the world’s best halfpipe and slopestyle riders to be in attendance. Anticipate the pipe battle to be between Shaun White and Louie Vito. After finishing first and second at the Dew Tour, both riders will be looking to continue their positive start to the season. There will be plenty of others looking to knock them off and riders likeScotty Lago, Luke Mitrani and Greg Bretz have the necessary skills to land on the podium.
