Adverse conditions have prevented qualification from taking place at the Slopestyle World Cups in Bakuriani.

Qualification in both freestyle skiing and snowboard events had initially been scheduled to be held yesterday at the Georgian venue.

Wind and rain had prevented qualification from going ahead.

Organisers faced further issues today, with heavy snow and wind forcing another delay to competition.

Snowboard slopestyle qualification has now been moved to tomorrow.

Finals in the snowboard event will be held on Sunday (March 6).

Freeski slopestyle qualification has been cancelled, with just the finals scheduled to be contested tomorrow.

Organisers expressed optimism that competition will proceed as planned, citing an improved weather forecast.

The competitions are serving as a test event for the 2023 Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships which will be held at the resort.

In the men's ski slopestyle, Switzerland's World Cup leader Fabian Bösch is on the start list alongside his compatriot Andri Ragettli, the reigning world champion.

Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic champion Sarah Höfflin of Switzerland is among those down to compete in the women's ski slopestyle, where there are only four athletes in the field.

No Beijing 2022 Olympic medallists are in attendance at the event.
