Summary

Thirty skiiers started the moguls with the defending champion, American Hannah Kearney, the favorite. Kearney was the 2013 and 2005 World Champion. Moguls was conducted as a series of elimination heats, with 20 skiiers advancing to the finals, which consisted of three runs. The top 12 skiiers on the first final run advanced to the second run, with six skiiers advancing to the final medal run. Kearney made the finals, leading the first run of qualifying. In the final she was joined by the three Canadian Dufour-Lapointe sisters – Justine, Chloe, and Maxime, all considered medal threats.

Kearney, Justine, and Chloe all made it to the final medal run, while Maxime fell on her second run of the finals and placed 12th. Kearney flew down the course on the medal run, and had high difficulty but her landings were not secure, costing her the gold medal. She would win bronze, trailing the two Dufour-Lapointe sisters, with Justine taking gold and Chloe silver. Justine had a faster final run, and more difficulty than her sister to garner the victory.
