Among those events that seats are available are four figure skating events (Ladies Free Program, Men’s Free Program, Pairs Free Program, and Dance Free), ice hockey (United States vs. Russia and the Gold Medal match), ski jumping, men’s freestyle aerials finals, and men’s downhill finals.

Also making the “most-wanted” events is Men’s Snowboarding Halfpipe (how far we’ve come).
