It's finally 2018 and in five weeks the Winter Olympics everyone is expecting to be Britain's best opens in South Korea. What can GB do?

The Winter Olympics are nearly here and excitement is building in the British Ski and Snowboard camp.

The team has picked up six World Cup podiums already this season - including a first for cross-country skier, Andrew Musgrave - with many athletes achieving career-best results.

Alpine skier Dave Ryding has achieved his joint second-best result with a fourth place at the Oslo city event. 

Is it possible that GB's skiers and snowboarders are peaking at just the right time to turn Pyeongchang 2018 into the Britain's  best ever Winter Games?

Back in October we interviewed the Performance Director of British Ski and Snowboard, Dan Hunt, who spoke to us about the team's Olympic prospects.

We think it's worth re-visiting that interview with just over a month to go.


PlanetSKI has spoken to several of GB's Olympic hopefuls in the build up to Pyeongchang.

You can read more and watch the video interviews here:
The Winter Olympics take place from 9th to 25th February.

The Winter Paralympics take place from 9th to 18th March.
