KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia —

The men's Olympic halfpipe competition will begin with qualifying at 2 p.m. local time as originally planned.

Earlier Tuesday, officials at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park had posted a change to the schedule.

There will be two qualifying heats followed by the semifinals at 7 p.m., with the top 12 riders advancing to the final at 9:30 p.m.

Rising temperatures have wreaked havoc with the halfpipe during training.

Danny Davis of the U.S. said Monday the run needed a lot of work while 2006 gold medalist Hannah Teter, who will compete in the women's contest on Wednesday, called the halfpipe "crap."

Temperatures were expected to rise well above freezing Tuesday afternoon, worsening already slushy conditions that could play a role in Shaun White's bid for a third straight gold.
