The following events are scheduled for today. Television coverage in the United States is via NBC and NBCSN; there is also coverage on the Olympic Channel, CNBC, and USA network (well done to NBC for putting all of this on air). U.S. skier Mikaela Shiffrin ran and won the Giant Slalom last night and is scheduled to run in the Slalom tonight, but remember that high winds that have hampered the entire Alpine skiing program. We’re also waiting for the debut of Lindsey Vonn in this Olympics, in the Women’s Downhill. The Men’s Downhill was run last night with Gold and Silver medals won by members of the Norwegian Team. Check your local listings as programming can vary due weather conditions and programming considerations.
Alpine Skiing (scheduled but always tentative due to wind)
Nordic Combined (don’t miss this one)
Ski Jumping (another one not to miss)
Remember: The nightly prime-time telecasts will feature the most popular events; if you want to see some of the more unique/esoteric events, check out NBCSN, which is available all day on air, online, and streaming. Some events at this Olympics have been delayed or postponed, especially the Alpine Skiing events, due to high winds, so NBC’s programming will shift accordingly. We follow everything via NBCSN since they tend to show it all.
