Sarah Burke has had quite the 24 hours in Aspen, CO as Winter X Games 14 has already begun its descent upon the famous ski town. Burke, who is going for the first ever four-peat among skiers at X Games, has announced she has officially signed with Empire Attire as her new glove sponsor.

Empire Attire is a glove company in only its second year of production whose owner is none other then skiing superstar Simon Dumont.

Burke joins Empire as the only female team member amongst the star studded lineup. Her fellow teammates include skiing icons such as Simon Dumont, Peter Olenick, Jossi Wells, Colby West, Candide Thovex and Henrik Harlaut.

The Canadian female ripper will look to earn her first Empire backed X Games Medal this Friday as today she was able to barely squeak into finals to be broadcast live under the lights.
