Olympic - present Alpine skiing (or downhill skiing ) is the sport of sliding down snow -covered hills on skis with fixed-heel bindings . Alpine skiing can be contrasted with nordic skiing – such as cross-country ski jumping and Telemark – in which skiers use free-heel bindings. Alpine skiing may take place at a ski resort where mechanical ski lifts have been installed to transport skiers up the mountain and where snow is groomed, avalanches are controlled and trees are cut to create trails. Alternatively, Alpine skiers may pursue the sport in less controlled environments; this practice is variously referred to as ski touring backcountry skiing or extreme skiing The sport is named for the European Alps where it originated in the late 1880s.

Alpine Skiing
Alpine skiing is a sport that is loved by millions of people all over the world. In addition to Americans, Europeans, the Japanese, Koreans and even the East Asians also love it. Experts say that the best slopes to glide are the one in steep mountains that are covered with lots of snow. Controlling speed and the direction is what’s seen as a challenge in alpine skiing. Before getting on to more about alpine skiing, let’s look at the history of it and how it evolved into what we see today. It was actually a man named Sondre Norheim, a Norwegian, who invented the ski binding. He is today referred to as the ‘father of modern day skiing’. Although at first the binding was done with some restriction, today moving from one place to another on snow is much easier and faster. In the past, majority of people had no idea what alpine skiing was all about. It was first practiced in the European Alps and then moved on to other countries. Skiers who are very much advanced in their alpine skiing use different methods when turning. The ‘parallel turn method’ is one such way where the skis are placed in a parallel order to help distribute the weight of the body. When it comes to this part in alpine skiing, the edge angle is an important factor to consider. A more advanced method of turning in alpine skiing is ‘carving’. In this case, the individual has to roll their knees on to the sides. The hips and the upper body are usually placed in a vertical angle.

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. Alpine Skiing is governed by the IPC with co-ordination by the IPC Alpine Skiing Technical Committee using the IPCAS Rules and Regulations. Skiers with blindness/visual impairment are guided through the course by sighted guides using voice signals to indicate the course to follow. Athletes with physical disabilities use equipment that is adapted to their needs including single ski, sit-ski or orthopaedic aids.
Alpine Skiing is currently practiced by athletes in nearly 40 countries and is steadily growing. Two Alpine Skiing events (Slalom and Giant Slalom) were already introduced at the first Paralympic Winter Games in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, in 1976.

Olympic History Alpine skiing competitions took place at the Winter Olympics in 1936, when a combined event was held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Since then, alpine combined was not contested at the Olympic Winter Games until 1988 in Calgary when it returned to the Olympic program. In 1952, the giant slalom was added as an event and in 1988, the super giant slalom became a fourth separate event. Alpine Skiing in Russia In the early 1900s, downhill skiers began to stand out among Russian skiers. They preferred speed downhill skiing and later got carried away by freestyle skiing, i.e. downhill skiing with turns which was later called slalom. Alpine Skiing grew rapidly in the ensuing years. In the 1970s, about 28,000 athletes were trained in sports centers for adults and children. About The Olympic Alpine competition consists of ten events: five for women and five for men. The rules are the same for men and women, but the courses differ.
