As its popularity grew nationwide during the next two decades, some ski resorts initially banned the sport on their slopes. Every four years since 1998, snowboarding gets international attention during the Olympic Winter Games. Beginning in Japan with giant slalom and halfpipe competitions for both men and women, subsequent Olympic events included parallel giant slalom, and snowboard cross that features four riders racing across a course studded with jumps, bumps and huge turns.
