After trading X Games Aspen for a private halfpipe on Copper Mountain, Colo., to train for the Olympics, White arrived in Sochi, Russia, to get a first look at the slopestyle course. White ended up withdrawing from slopestyle after practicing on the course, and will only compete in halfpipe where he is vying for his third consecutive gold in the pipe.
