The women's snowboard slopestyle qualification round, which was scheduled for Sunday, was cancelled due to inclement weather conditions and all competitors on the 27-athlete start list were given automatic entry into the two-run final scheduled for Monday.
High winds were an issue during the men's slopestyle final in the morning.
Organizers delayed the afternoon start of the women's qualifier for 45 minutes before deciding to cancel.
Laurie Blouin of Stoneham, Que., who suffered an apparent head injury in a training run on Friday, was cleared to practice after being re-evaluated on Saturday and remains hopeful of competing in what would be her first Olympics.
Brooke Voigt of Fort McMurray, Alta., will also be competing in her first Olympics, while Spencer O'Brien of Courtenay, B.C., will be making her second appearance.
