Tomorrow night will feature Blackalicious and Michael Franti with Spearhead, so if you're anywhere near Breckenridge, get out and enjoy the show!The halfpipe qualifiers and finals, originally scheduled for tonight, have been delayed until Sunday morning. Until then, check out some shots from practice, and go manage your Phantasy Phreeride team!Ahhh, caption time again, always the most enjoyable part of my work as NS editor.High mute grabs are sooo in this year.Tanner Hall has dropped his red-white-and-blue outfit in favor of the national colors of the great nation of Estonia.Okay, I'm spent.The first member to correctly identify this skier in the comments section will receive a free NS bandana.Estonia actually has several ski resorts, and is rumored to receive the best snowfall in the Baltic States. We highly recommend it for your next European ski vacation.If you do end up going to Estonia, make sure to remember this phrase: "Ma vihkan sind." It means, "You have beautiful goats."
