The networks of NBC Universal offer various Olympic events throughout the day, we thought we'd help you wade through it all and give you ideas about what to watch.

LADIES HIT THE ICE
U.S. national champion Rachael Flatt and runner-up Mirai Nagasu begin their quest for gold as women's figure skating begins with the short program, live coverage begins at 7 p.m. on NBC.

SHAVED ICE
The bobsled track got a mini-makeover; with an inch of ice shaved off the dreaded 50-50 curve, check out the changes as the women hit the Whistler track for women's bobsled. Watch for Team USA 1 piloted by Shauna Rohbock, Team USA 2 piloted by Erin Pac, and Team USA 3 piloted by Bree Schaff. A member of Team Canada has Texas ties, Helen Upperton started her athletic career at the University of Texas at Austin as a triple jumper and started bobsled in 2000. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. on NBC.

SKIING TAKES OVER
If you can't get enough of ski events, then hold on to your skis.

Then at 7 p.m. on NBC it's Alpine Skiing (men's giant slalom), Freestyle Skiing (women's ski cross) and Nordic Combined.
