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 set to begin at 10 a.m. local time (9 p.m. Saturday ET), the women’s qualifying event was first delayed to noon local time (11 p.m. Saturday ET). About an hour later, officials made the call to postpone for the day, and subsequently updated start times for the other slopestyle events.
The following changes were made. Essentially, all four events’ start times were moved forward 24 hours.

Sun 2/13 10a (Sat 2/12 9pET) →
Mon 2/14 10a (Sun 2/13 9pET)
