Michal Ligocki of Poland rides during the men's snowboard halfpipe qualification at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia on Feb. 11. Abnormally warm weather conditions in Sochi have raised some concern among snowboarders as to whether the halfpipe will be suitable for the men's finals today. Issues they've faced range from loose snow causing graininess and hidden bumps to a problematic uneven steepness between the two sides. The men's halfpipe finals are scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET today.
