Women’s 2018 Winter Olympic Big Air Final Moved Up Due To Weather Forecast

The women’s Big Air snowboard final debut for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea will be pushed up a day due to a high wind weather forecast for Friday. Most reports attribute the absolute horrible call to run the women’s slopestyle final as a reason the IOC isn’t taking any chances, electing to run a day early to prevent dangerous conditions. Moving forward a full 24 hours, its newly scheduled time means that it will be live on TV in the United States tonight, Feb. 21, at 7:30pm ET. Hopefully the weather will hold so the women get to showcase their top tricks to the world on the Big Air course, a moment that they were robbed of last week in slope.

Will the USA continue their sweep in freestyle snowboarding disciplines? Lookout for the United States’ Jamie Anderson, Julia Marino, and Jessika Jenson as they take on the international field, led by top qualifier Anna Gasser (AUT), in the final tonight!
