Two-time Olympic halfpipe champ Shaun White will compete for the second time since the Sochi Olympics at the Dew Tour Mountain Championships in  Breckenridge, Colo., beginning Thursday, and streamed live on NBC Sports Live Extra.

NBC will also air coverage Saturday (2:30-4 p.m. ET) and Sunday (1-3 p.m. ET).

White, who won Olympic gold in 2006 and 2010, finished fourth at the Sochi Olympics and fourth at the Winter X Games on Jan. 22 in his last two competitions.

White has said he’s hoping to be at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics, which would be his fourth Winter Games.

White, now 29, was the oldest U.S. Olympic men’s halfpipe snowboarder at the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics and, in 2018, would be older than any previous U.S. Olympic men’s halfpipe snowboarder. The sport debuted at the Olympics in 1998.

At Dew Tour, he’s scheduled to compete in the halfpipe semifinals Thursday and, should he advance, the final Saturday.

Also slated for Dew Tour action are Olympic champions Kelly Clark and Iouri Podladtchikov (snowboard halfpipe) and David Wise (ski halfpipe) plus snowboarder Chloe Kim, who at 14 became the youngest Winter X Games gold medalist ever on Jan. 24.
