Although today marked the first day of spring in Australia, riders were greeted by freezing temperatures when they rocked up to register this morning. Pipe quals kick off tomorrow morning when the men drop in at 9:15am. The newly groomed slopestyle course will be open tomorrow for training, where competition begins on Wednesday morning.
