Challenging weather conditions from a weekend storm that dumped eight inches of new snow on the venue at Breckenridge have forced a variety of cancelations and postponements at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix.

The FIS jury for snowboarding has canceled the halfpipe and snowboarding events, which will not be scored.

The decision was made after assessing the circumstances and taking feedback from both riders and sanctioning partners FIS and TTR.
