QUOTES
Eric Webster, Sprint U.S. Grand Prix Tour Director
The heavy snow at Breckenridge has created challenges for the event. To give us the best chance of success, it's important that we maintain a focus on one venue with our full resources for Saturday with halfpipe skiing and snowboarding. Sunday, we'll be able to put all of our resources into producing the slopestyle snowboarding competition.
