Alpine skiing, also known as downhillskiing is a snow sport in which racers wearing skis with fixed-heel bindings ski down the snow-covered hills or mountains in the fastest time possible for them. The sport consists of four main disciplines- downhill, slalom, giantslalom and super-G. The sport is usually practised at ski resorts. It is a part of the Winter Olympics since 1936 (except 1940). The objective of the sport is to run down the course and cross the gate line in the fastest time possible to win the race.
