Para Snowboard was the latest sport added to the Winter Paralympic Games program in 2014. The lower limb impairment athletes were featured at the 2014 Games but athletes with upper limb impairments also compete in the sport. In the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games Cross and Banked Slalom were added to the races.
Each athlete competes three runs down the course with their finish time of their best two runs determining the final order based on ascending time. The course set up is similar to able-bodied snowboard cross events, with modifications to terrain features.
