Mikaela Shiffrin is the biggest name in action with the women's giant slalom potentially one of a number of gold medals the American skiing sensation could claim in Pyeongchang.
Team GB hopes on day three rest with X Games medallist Katie Ormerod in the women's snowboard slopestyle final. Ormerod has been widely tipped in the Pyeongchang build-up to emulate compatriot Jenny Jones's bronze medal-winning heroics in Sochi 2014.
