The 2018 Winter Olympics continue to rage on in Pyeongchang this week and there’s still plenty of action left to unfold in South Korea as athletes go for gold in their respective events. Make sure you’ve checked out everything you need to know about the 2018 Winter Olympics, and then get ready for Tuesday’s slate of events with this preview.

Tuesday’s coverage on NBC brings a wide variety of events — from slalom skiing to halfpipe snowboarding, figure skating and women’s hockey — and there’s plenty on the line. All eyes will be on American snowboarder Shaun White as he looks to bounce back from a tough showing in 2014 and revisit Olympic glory in the men’s halfpipe final. American skier Mikaela Shiffrin could also make her debut on Tuesday in her best event, the slalom, barring another delay from the weather that’s throwing off the alpine calendar.

We’ve got you covered here with an overview of what to watch and how to watch or stream it on the fifth full day of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, as well as a medal tracker with updates from the previous events:
