Due to heavy snowfall and poor visibility, qualifying in women's freeski slopestyle was postponed Sunday to a later date and time yet to be determined.

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

About an hour later, the call was made to delay the event for the day. Times for the event's final and men's event are now expected to be updated.
