Alpine ski racing is a sport in which athletes attempt to complete a downhill ski course in the fastest time. Courses are marked by poles or gates and may involve high speed turns, dips, flats, and jumps. Alpine ski racing categories include downhill, super-G, giant slalom, and slalom. Downhill ski races are faster and riskier, while slalom races require more technical skill to navigate through the tightly-spaced poles. Downhill ski races usually are single-run, with the fastest time winning, while slalom race competitions are scored using the combined times of two runs.
