Austria's Anna Gasser took the gold while Zoi Sadowski-Synnott, 16, of New Zealand took the bronze.

NBC Sports reported each rider's total score was based on their best two scores (out of three), but those scores had to come from different tricks. 

Anderson, a California native, won gold in slopestyle last week.
