Alpine skiing involves all skiing events which occur on a downhill course and do not involve ramps or bumps. The Olympic alpine competition consists of ten events: five for women and five for men across downhill, super G, slalom, giant slalom and combined, as well as a mixed alpine team event.
 
Despite its status as one of the blue ribbon events of the Olympic Winter Games, it was not until 1936 at Garmisch-Partenkirchen that alpine skiing made its debut when the combined (downhill and slalom) events for both men and women were held. This event was dropped eight years later and only reappeared at Sarajevo 1984.
