  • Snowboard slopestyle women's final, Laurie Blouin, Spencer O'Brien, Brooke Voigt, 9 p.m. – 10:40 p.m. ET (delayed) on Sunday

After an early scare, reigning world champion Laurie Blouin will compete in the final. The Stoneham, Que., native suffered an apparent head injury during a training session but has been cleared to compete. Joining her in the final will be Spencer O'Brien of Courtenay, B.C, and Brooke Voigt of Fort McMurray, Alta. Saturday's qualifiers were cancelled due to high winds, so it's down to a one-night, two-run showdown for all 27 competitors.

  • Moguls men's final, Mikael Kingsbury, 5:30 a.m. – 8:50 a.m. on Monday

Mikael Kingsbury is a heavy favourite heading into the men's moguls final. The 25-year from Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts is seen as the successor to a long line of Canadian greats in the sport, such as Jean-Luc Brassard to Alex Bilodeau. The latter beat Kingsbury for gold in Sochi, but Kingsbury is favoured to stand on top of the podium this year.
