Snow has postponed another event at the Winter Olympics.

Women's aerials, which was set to have its qualifying round at Genting Snow Park, has been bumped back until Monday at 4:30 a.m. ET -- Monday afternoon in Beijing.

It's the third event to be postponed at the 2022 Olympics this morning -- the first two events were delayed National Cross-Country Skiing Cenrtre, the women's freeski slopestyle qualifying round and the men's giant slalom final.

The later was eventually held after a postponement, with Switzerland's Marco Odermatt taking home gold in a snowy giant slalom final.

After over a third of the field crashed out in blizzard conditions, Switzerland’s Marco Odermatt won gold in men's giant slalom in a second run delayed by a snow storm. First-time Olympian River Radamus was the top U.S. skier in the event, placing fourth.

"It's unbelievable. It was a hard day, with the conditions, with such a long wait between the two runs. It was more than five hours for me, it was such a long time to re-think everything and it was hard to stay focused. I tried to sleep some minutes in between," Odermatt said. "I actually never dreamt about it but now it still feels like a dream."
