Snowboarding


Snowboarding's first appearance as an official Olympic sport was at the 1998 event in Nagano, Japan. Today, boarders from all over the world compete in several boarding competitions: The snowboard cross is a four-person race with jumps and turns, the halfpipe is a tricks competition with judges awarding style points, and the parallel giant slalom is a one-on-one race through identical slalom courses.
