Two of Australia's medallists from the Sochi Olympics (aerial skiers Lydia Lassila and David Morris will be in Pyeongchang, while Britt Cox (moguls), Scotty James (snowboard halfpipe), Alex Pullin (snowboard cross) and Danielle Scott (aerial skiing) lead a group aspiring to win gold.
With snowboard halfpipe vying to be the blue ribband event of the Games, James can go to the next level with a win over the sport's $50 million man and all-time great, Shaun White. Victories over the American at last year's X Games and test event in PyeongChang suggest it is very possible.
Moguls skier Cox stamped her gold medal ambitions with victory in the first World Cup event of the year in Canada. Her seven World Cup wins and world championship victory in 2016/17 marked the single greatest performance in a season by an Australian winter athlete.
Cox's teammate Graham is a strong prospect of a medal too, but looks to be challenging for a minor one given the dominance of the sport's greatest practitioner, six-times World Cup champion Canadian Mikael Kingsbury.
The dual Olympian is one of Australia's best hopes for gold, winning two events to start this season. He retained top spot in the snowboard cross World Cup rankings after he claimed bronze in the latest event in Italy.
In the aerials, world championship silver medallist Scott is best placed for Games glory. She bounced back to form by winning in China in December, following on from a disappointing 22nd place on the opening day of World Cup competition.
The Veteran also can't be ruled out for a podium finish. The 2010 Vancouver Olympic champion, Lassila won gold at the Lake Placid World Cup in the United States recently.
Morris is a big-event performer but has struggled in the PyeongChang lead-up events. He is a two-time Olympian and Sochi silver medallist.
Hughes showed he has fully recovered from knee surgery last year by taking out the snowboard cross World Cup event in Austria in December.
Lambert is the big smokey, the 20 year-old already a World Cup medallist who looks to be timing his run well.
