The halfpipe will be Shaun White's only chance at a gold medal in Sochi.

SB Nation 2014 Olympics Preview

By now, Shaun White choosing not to compete in the slopestyle has become the early story of the snowboarding portion of the Olympic Games. But with a long list of events scheduled over the next few weeks, one of the United States' top sports should provide some of the most entertaining television in Sochi.

Snowboarding's Saturday schedule will see the medal for Men's Slopestyle awarded.

February 8

12:30 a.m. ET: Men's Slopestyle Semifinals 
3:45 a.m.: Men's Slopestyle Finals

White pulled out of the slopestyle event due to injury, and Canada's Max Parrot has become the favorite in this event as a result. Parrot won the gold at the X-Games and finished first in the qualifying run with a score of 97.5. This event allows snowboarders to do a bit of everything as they make their way down the course and may be the most entertaining of the snowboarding events.

On Thursday, eight snowboarders qualified directly for the finals and will not need to compete in the semifinals. Four participants will advance from the semifinals to the finals. For a full list of those who went straight to the finals and those who are looking for a spot there, click here.
