Chemmy Alcott aims for another British medal on snow when she competes in the women's downhill in Sochi on Wednesday.
This year's event, which starts at 7am, is an open contest after Olympic champion Lindsey Vonn pulled out of the Games at the start of the year following her failure to overcome a succession of injuries.
Londoner Alcott also suffered injury in the run up to the Games, with the third leg break of her career in August almost stopping her from competing in Sochi.
She managed to make it, although, wary of taking on too much, the 31-year-old pulled out of Monday's slalom in the women's super-combined event to boost her chances in Wednesday's contest.
As she aims for the podium, she will be hoping to emulate history-maker Jenny Jones, who claimed GB's first medal on snow in the women's snowboard slopestyle.
Alcott faces top quality opposition in her pursuit of a medal, including Germany's Maria Hoefl-Riesch, who successfully defended her Olympic super-combined title on Monday.
The formidable Hoefl-Riesch also has two World Cup victories to her name this season, while other contenders include Austrian 2010 bronze medalist Elisabeth Gorgl, Switzerland's Marianne Kaufmann-Abderhalden and Slovenia's Tina Maze - who was a sensation all last season and could feature, despite a dip in form.
Elsewhere on Wednesday, watch out for Germany's Eric Frenzel in the nordic combined, which combines cross country skiing and ski jumping - normal hill. Frenzel, who won the large hill gold at Vancouver in 2010, is the overall World Cup series champion.
In figure skating, Wednesday's free skate concludes a pair's contest likely to star Russians Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov. Volosozhar switched from Ukraine after Vancouver 2010 to team up with Trankov, and the two won world gold last year.
They also set a world record points total in October, although Germany's Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy will be aiming to spoil a home gold.
Other medals up for grabs include the men's 1,000m speed skating, women's halfpipe snowboard, and the luge doubles, while GB women take on Canada at 10am and GB men face Switzerland at 3pm in the curling group games.
