DISCLAIMER
This timeline is made by me. I've spent lots of time gathering information about this in the games. Please do not steal this timeline and upload it somewhere else without crediting me.

EXPLANATION
The timeline uses the first game as a basis, which takes place in the year of 2000, the same year in which the game came out. Then I've looked and compared the age of the characters presented in their profiles to figure out how much time that passes between the games. At first glance, it's actually quite surprising how much thought EA gave into the age of the characters in-between the games - Most characters' age actually matches up very well with the year the games should take place in. Between SSX and SSX Tricky most characters age 1 year, which makes sense since the games came out one year apart. Although there are some characters who have confusing aging processes (Kaori for example ages 2 years between SSX and SSX Tricky, whereas JP doesn't age at all but stays the same), however, for the sake of easement I've still decided to follow the original intention of having SSX Tricky taking place 1 year after the events of the first game. JP and Kaori's confusing ages could easily be explained by them being born in a very early or late month of the year.

SSX Blur is the only game which doesn't take place in the same year as it was released, since the characters' ages are exactly +1 from SSX 3 and -1 from SSX On Tour.

In SSX3, we get to see trading cards for each character dating all the way back to the first SSX game. Through the trading cards, we learn that characters reach the rank of "Veteran" once they enter their third SSX tournament. Since Jurgen and Hiro are described as veterans on their respective trading cards for SSX, it means that there has been at least 2 previous SSX tournaments before the one that takes place in the original game.

Additionally, I've decided to completely disregard the ending credits of SSX On Tour that explained what happens to the characters after the tour, since I got the impression that those were not serious and just played for jokes.

I've also discovered that the timeline makes for some very interesting theories regarding the various circuits, and how future games could expand on these. The most interesting part is that there is a two year gap between SSX Tricky and SSX 3. DJ Atomika states in SSX 3 that it took around 2 years to turn the BIG mountain into a SSX circuit, but I'd like to imagine that this means there was a third world circuit in the year of 2002, which could potentially be used as a basis for a future SSX game.
