Welcome to Alpine Skiing

Athletes in Alpine Skiing events must combine speed and agility while racing down slopes at speeds of around 100km/h. There are five events on the Paralympic Programme: Downhill, Super-G, Super Combined, Giant Slalom and Slalom. Paralympic competition accommodates male and female athletes with a physical disability such as spinal injury, cerebral palsy, amputation, les autres conditions and blindness/visual impairment. Athletes compete in three categories based on their functional ability, and a results calculation system allows athletes with different impairments to compete against each other.
