BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado — Due to inclement weather and a forecast calling for continued snow and wind, the second stop of The Honda Ski Tour skiing events scheduled for Friday in Breckenridge are on hold. The skiercross time trials, heats and finals will all take place Saturday starting at 10:15 a.m. The athlete awards ceremony will take place at the BaseCamp Pavilion at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow Saturday night with Blackalicious taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. and Michael Franti & Spearhead at 8:50 p.m..
    The BaseCamp Music Experience Friday will continue as planned, kicking off with the Wailers in the BCME Pavilion at 8:30. Additionally, some of the hottest names in music will no doubt warm up the expected crowd of thousands. Don Carlos, Swollen Members, DJ Logic, Elan with DJ Siren C, Kamphire Collective and more will rock Breckenridge at various venues around town.
    “The one thing you can almost always plan on with winter events is a delay due to the weather, which is why we erected a 1,400-square-foot tent in the center of town,” said THST co-founder Kipp Nelson. “People should huddle up today and come out tonight to see the amazing bands we have lined up which will definitely keep them warm.”
    Originally planned as a night event, the halfpipe qualifying rounds and finals will take place on Sunday morning and afternoon, starting with Heat 1 at 10:30 a.m. and finals scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m.
    The industry expo originally scheduled for today at the base of Peak 8 is also postponed until tomorrow Saturday.
    THST is North America’s new elite, four-stop mountain festival and skiing competition that features the world’s best halfpipe and skiercross skiers competing for a total of $500,000, the biggest purse in skiing. Additional tour stops are Aspen/Snowmass, Colo.; Squaw Valley, Calif.; and Sun Valley, Idaho, which took place in January.
