Types of Ski Racing
Alpine Ski Racing: There are five men at Alpine Ski Racing events and five women events. Though the rules and races are essentially the same, the courses tend to differ in length.
Slalom Races: Usually, the shortest race involves Skiers negotiating a set of close-together gates and turns. Competitors do one run, and then the course is reset with the gates and turns put in different places before the skier completes this second run. The fastest combined time of both races is the winner.
Giant Slalom: Similar to Slalom races, but taking place over a longer course with the gates a bit farther apart. This race requires greater endurance than the slalom races, necessitating wider turns.
Downhill Races: These are the longest and fastest of the races, with skiers completing one run each and the one with the quickest time (determined down to the 100th of a second) being the winner.
Super G: Short for Super Giant Slalom race, this is similar to the giant slalom, except the course is more prolonged and steeper, so Skiers can reach speeds comparable to those achieved in the downhill races whilst having to negotiate tight turns.
Combined: The combined races feature a downhill and a slalom run, testing both the agility necessary for the slalom race and the endurance of the drop. The winner is the skier with the best combined time for the two events.
Nordic Ski Racing: Nordic Skiing is also known as Cross Country Skiing or Cross Country Racing and can be done either downhill, which is known as Telemark Skiing, a form of Downhill Ski Racing, using cross-country skis instead of alpine skis - or on the flat. Nordic Racing is done on a course divided into three sections: a third uphill, a third downhill, and a third on the apartment.
Freestyle Ski Racing: This form allows competitors to ski anywhere within the designated tracks, and the skiers are then judged on the style and technique demonstrated.
Alpine Freestyle: Involves doing aerial acrobatics and using rails.
