Heavy snowfall and poor visibility postponed Sunday's qualifying round in women's freeski slopestyle, triggering a cascade of adjustments to the discipline's schedule.

Originally scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. local time (9 p.m. Saturday ET), the women's qualifying start time was initially delayed and pushed forward to noon local time (11 p.m. Saturday ET).

About an hour later, officials made the call to postpone the event for the day and subsequently update start times for the other slopestyle events.

The following changes were made. Essentially, all four events were pushed forward 24 hours.

  • Women's Slopestyle Qualifying
    Sun 2/13 10a (Sat 2/12 9pET) →
    Mon 2/14 10a (Sun 2/13 9pET)
  • Women's Slopestyle Final
    Mon 2/14 9:30a (Sun 2/13 8:30pET) →
    Tue 2/15 9:30a (Mon 2/14 8:30pET)
  • Men's Slopestyle Qualifying
    Mon 2/14 12:30p (Sun 2/13 11:30pET) →
