Olympic slalom champion Mikaela Shiffrin headlines the first World Cup Alpine skiing races on the East Coast in 25 years as part of NBC Sports’ winter sports coverage this weekend.

Shiffrin, who has won 12 straight slaloms, seeks her first outright World Cup giant slalom victory Saturday and to extend her slalom streak Sunday in Killington, Vt., both streaming on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app and airing on NBC.

The first runs are in the morning, and the second runs are in the afternoon.

In figure skating, Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu skates in front of home fans at NHK Trophy in Japan, while Jason Brown and Nathan Chen could become the first U.S. men to qualify for the Grand Prix Final since 2011.

In snowboarding, a World Cup stop for the new Olympic discipline of big air will double as a Pyeongchang Olympic test event at the 2018 Winter Games venue, the Alpensia Ski Resort in South Korea.

NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app will also stream World Cup cross-country skiing, Nordic combined and ski jumping action this weekend.
