This is the third race that has been moved due to weather.
After twice pushing back the start time for the first run of the slalom at Yongpyong Alpine Centre, officials made a decision to postpone Wednesday's race to Friday, meaning American star Mikaela Shiffrin must wait another day to begin her Olympics.
The latest schedule change came Monday, when the temperature was 5 degrees and the women's giant slalom was shelved less than three hours before it was supposed to start. Both were postponed because of wind.
Additionally, Svindal and Jansrud could join Aamodt as the only Norwegian alpine skiers with multiple Olympic gold medals. "We have plenty of time to get all the competition in". "At present everything is OK and as we have said before, the ski federation is well used to disruption by wind, by too much snow, by too little snow, by rain, by all sorts of things", Adams said. So hoping for the best.
"It is a very heavy load", said Shiffrin's coach, Mike Day. Now, with the big time difference between the USA and South Korea, the giant slalom is set to be seen in primetime in America on Wednesday.

They were also fearful of political fallout in Washington if they were seen to be buying scurrilous information on the president. The Russian also said he was holding on to the NSA cyberweapons "at the orders of senior Russian intelligence officials".
Such has been Shiffrin's domination of slalom - she has also won three World Championship crowns - a recent blip in her form, where she managed just one podium in her last six races, became a major debating point among followers of the sport. This is Austria's longest gold medal drought in a men's alpine skiing event, just ahead of the super-G, which is from February 16, 1998, when Hermann Maier won gold.
If the winds die down, the gold medal is set to be decided at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre, with reigning champion Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States hotly tipped to prevail.
All of the shifting means that they will try to open the 11-race Alpine program Tuesday at the Jeongseon hill with the men's combined, which adds times from one downhill run in the morning and one slalom run in the afternoon.
Should she secure gold, she would become the first Alpine skier to successfully defend an Olympic slalom title, following her success in Sochi.
Men and women shared race days at the 2006 Turin Olympics and 1998 Nagano Olympics, for example.
