Snowboarding


The halfpipe is a U-shaped course dug into a snow-covered hill. Each finalist makes two runs, with the higher score determining their final standing. The parallel giant slalom, introduced in 2002, is a bracketed tournament competition with snowboarders competing against each other in two-race heats on separate slalom courses.
