Four years after she won gold in snowboard slopestyle's debut in the Games, Anderson claimed another here in Pyeongchang.

Only five riders made it down the first run without falling in the difficult conditions, which also included hard snow, with Anderson scoring 83.00 points to give her an nearly 10-point advantage heading into the second run. It turned out that Anderson, 27, needed only one: her first run netted a score of 83.00 - easily the best of the field, with the other podium finishers scoring around 72 and 74 points.

In addition to the shorter final, the snowboarders' two qualifying runs were canceled, as organizers tried to adjust the crowded schedule.

Despite the winds dying down from the day before, they still had a massive effect on Monday's event.

Anderson took the second run even though she didn't need it to win and fell on a jump. Anna Gasser won three X Games gold medals last year―while injuries have held her back this season, she'll still be a force to be reckoned with.

She will compete in big air, scheduled for February 23, which makes its Olympic debut in PyeongChang.
