""Olympic Games"" – Google News
When the Olympic Winter Games begin in Beijing in 2022, 11 different snowboard events will take place there: five different disciplines for men and women as well as a mixed team event. Each of these events – big air, slopestyle, parallel giant slalom, halfpipe and snowboard cross – requires different techniques and skills. They also have unique systems for determining winners, some based on the ratings given by the judges and others based on time. It can be a little confusing to the casual viewer! Fortunately, we’ve broken down how each snowboard discipline is rated in the slides below so you can watch the games like a pro this year.
