The U.S. Para Alpine Ski Team is built around one common goal—provide the right resources for athletes who are inspired to be the Best in the World!
What is Para Alpine Skiing?
As in Olympic alpine skiing, the goal is to navigate a course by skiing within gates and crossing the finish line in the fastest time. Over the years, events were added for sit skiers and visually impaired skiers, and the program was expanded to include the five races familiar to fans of alpine skiing at the Olympic level.
Para alpine skiing includes: Alpine Combined, Downhill, Giant Slalom, Slalom and Super G.
Alpine skiers are seperated into three groups: sitting, standing and visually impaired. There are additional classifications within each group that skiers compete under.
