Sochi's Alpine Skiing Programme


Alpine Skiing
Medal events: 10
Athletes: 320
Dates: 9–22 February
Venue: The Rosa Khutor Alpine Resort will host all Alpine skiing disciplines.

Alpine skiing first appeared on the Olympic programme in 1936 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen , when Men’s and Women’s combined events were held. The only event that year was a combined competition of both Downhill and Slalom. In 1948, this was held along with separate Downhill and Slalom races. Four years later the giant slalom was added and in 1988 the super Giant Slalom became a fourth separate event. Now, the Olympic programme features ten medal events, with men and women both contesting Downhill, Super Combined, Super-G, Giant Slalom and Slalom. The Sochi 2014 Alpine skiing events will open with the Men’s Downhill on 9 February.
