Paralympic Snowboarding consist of one event - boarder cross.  Snowboard cross (also Snowboarder X, SBX, Boardercross, Boarder-X or BX) is a snowboard competition in which a group of snowboarders (usually four) start simultaneously atop an inclined course, then race to reach the finish line first. Paralympic Boardercross competition is open to lower limb stand-up disabilities only in 2014.  World Cup competitions offer boardercross to upper and lower limb disability standing athletes.  

If you are interested in getting involved in Snowboarding, you can take lessons with many ski schools around the country. Look for ski schools that have adaptive programs or instructors with special training on how to teach athletes with physical disabilities.  Most ski resorts have adaptive ski schools, so you can go to your local ski area.  It may be a good idea to call the ski school first to see if they have an adaptive program.  Find a local program in your community - visit the Paralympic Resource Network.
