The ski cross time trials, heats, and finals will all take place Saturday, starting at 10:15a.m. The athlete awards ceremony will take place at the BaseCamp Pavilion at 8:30pm tomorrow (Saturday) night with Blackalicious taking the stage at 7:30pm and Michael Franti & Spearhead at 8:50pm. The BaseCamp Music Experience tonight (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 ski cross skiers competing for a total of $500,000, the biggest purse in skiing. Additional tour stops are Aspen/Snowmass, CO, Squaw Valley, CA, and Sun Valley, ID, which took place in January.  BASECAMP MUSIC EXPERIENCE SCHEDULE Friday February 2nd BASECAMP—PAVILION 7:30pm Doors7:30-7:50pm Sun Valley Event Footage w/ DJ Logic7:50-8:05pm Pro Photo Shootout 8:05-8:20pm Ski Cross Athlete Intros 8:20-8:30pm Halfpipe Athlete Intro 8:30-10:00pm The Wailers  BASECAMP—AROUND TOWNQuandry Grill (free entry)2:00-4:00pm - Après Ski, Ski Tour Girls, Giveaways, Happy Hour The Maggie (free entry)2:00-4:00pm - DJ, Happy Hour, Giveaways Beaver Run Resort, Ballroom-Peak 17 10:00pm Doors Open11:00-1:30am Don Carlos The Crocs Lounge, The Forest Room, Village at Breckenridge 9:30pm Doors Open 10:15-11:30pm Matt White 11:55-2:00am DJ Logic  Ten Mile Ballroom, The Village at Breckenridge 10:30pm Doors Open 11:30pm-12:45am Swollen Members  Salt Creek 10:00pm Doors Open10:30-11:30pm Kamphire Collective 11:55-2:00am Elan with DJ Siren C   Saturday February 3rd  BASECAMP—PAVILION6:00-6:10 Doors/House Music 6:10-6:40 Sun Valley Footage 6:40-7:20 Limelight Film Festival 7:20-7:30 Uncle E.
