Measurements of electroweak parameters with the CMS detector are reported. The effective electroweak mixing angle sin^{2}_{\theta} is extracted by measuring the forward-backward asymmetry in dilepton events near the Z boson mass region. Experimental and theoretical challenges needed for a high-precision W boson mass measurement are reported using a sample of Z->mumu events.
