By U.S. Paralympics | Feb. 07, 2018, 12:54 a.m. (ET)


Mike Mino, pictured above at the 2017 World Para Snowboard Championships in Big White, Canada where he won gold and silver, is looking to build off his success on the same course this week at the world cup finals, Feb. 6-8.

Team USA will return to Big White, the site of the 2017 World Para Snowboard Championships, to compete for overall season titles, Feb. 6-8, at the fourth and final world cup of 2017-18. The U.S. is in prime position to come away with several crystal globes in snowboard-cross and banked slalom led by Brenna Huckaby, Mike Minor, Mike Schultz and Mike Shea. Huckaby sits in second in the women's LL-1 class but striking distance from the globe with a successful performance in Big White. Minor, Schultz and Shea lead the men's rankings in their respective classes. 

Athletes had success on this course last year with the U.S. winning 10 medals in Big White. Over 70 athletes will challenge for points and titles with snowboard-cross being contested on Feb. 6 and banked slalom on Feb. 8. The world cup finals is the last major competition before the Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 in less than a month, taking place March 9-18.
