You can find full schedules online at NBC, and there's a super helpful guide to options to watch the Olympics over at Gizmodo (the short version? Pony up for a Hulu Live subscription.) Also Fasterskier has some ideas on finding coverage. When you dig into the full schedules at NBC, you'll note that there's a fair number of replays scheduled in the afternoons and evenings, so that may be a good option for those who want to watch but get some sleep.
We are also exploring organizing some viewing parties, so stay tuned as we pull that together.
The eagle-eyed among readers may have noticed that we said "may be participating in". While the biathletes should get starts in most every race, the skiers may or may not get any starts during the Olympics - and we may will likely not know until much closer to the events of any given day. Currently only the skiathlon and the classic sprint startlists have been nailed down, with Ida getting a start in the sprint. We're confirming with Caitlin and Kait about the skiathlon.
