Several riders have said the Olympic slopestyle course contains extremely difficult rail features at the top of the mountain. Norwegian medal contender Torstein Horgmo broke his collarbone practicing on the course, and White twisted his wrist on a feature. White did say the course was difficult, but only cited wanting to concentrate more on halfpipe as the reason for his slopestyle withdrawal.
