The event, which includes FIS World Cups for both halfpipe skiing and snowboarding, has been rescheduled due to unseasonable weather conditions and will now take place January 28 to February 2.

"As an FIS World Cup, the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix is an integral part of the Olympic qualifying process," said USSA VP of Events Calum Clark.

"It was important to both USSA and FIS to have the best quality halfpipe possible and moving to February will help us ensure the best athletic event."

The new schedule coincides with the Visa Freestyle International in Deer Valley.
