The event takes place from March 7 to 16. The Opening Ceremony will kick off Friday at 8:00 p.m. local time or 11 a.m. ET and Canadians will be able to watch on CBC. Just check the CBC website on Friday for more details.
Throughout the Games there will be 65 hours of television coverage in Canada and 350 hours of online streaming across CBC/Radio Canada, Rogets Sportsnet, Accessible Media Inc. and Yahoo Canada Sports.
There are five sports at the Paralympics: alpine skiing (which includes snowboarding), biathlon, cross-country skiing, wheelchair curling and sledge hockey.
Para-snowboard will make its debut at the Sochi Games. The sport is similar to snowboard cross in that competitors traverse a course with jumps and turns. The key difference is that there's only one rider doing timed runs on the course at a time.
Canada is sending 54 athletes to the Paralympic Games to compete in para-alpine skiing, biathlon, para-Nordic skiing, sledge hockey, wheelchair curling and para-snowboard.
