All 3 of our entries in men's ski cross have been on the World Cup podium this season. Here's hoping for a sweep. David Duncan looks to be the gold medal favourite. Plus we have a gold metal favourite in women's ski half pipe. It looks like tomorrow will be a big day if things go as they should. I'm thinking it will be a 4-6 medal day. 4 being more likely

If we crash in the ski cross I'll cry. We better win at least two medals in ski cross tomorrow.

@dave199 Hmm we definitely do not have a gold medal favorite in women's snowboarding halfpipe. We're not expected to any medals in that, but anything can happen.

It's ski Halfpipe tomorrow and we do do have a gold favourite in Rosalind Groenewoud

Two years ago she had the highest score in women's halfpipe at the x games. She won silver at the 2014 X games. She should medal.

I don't know. These freestyle skiing / snowboard events are so unpredictable.

Canada had a lot of X Games medalists in Sochi: Kaya Turski, Seb Toutant, Max Parrot, Spencer O'Brien, Kevin Hill - none of them got a podium.

A lot of pressure on Rosalind Groenewoud for women's ski halfpipe and Chris Del Bosco for men's ski cross.

As we're seeing now, the only thing we could predict with ski cross (and snowboard cross) is that it's unpredictable.

Out of the top 10 contenders for a medal, only 3 or 4 are left standing.

A French sweep is still possible.

Canada got another great victory today. A new member of the Athlete's Commission in Hayley Wickenheiser.
