Para alpine skiing features the disciplines of downhill, slalom, giant slalom, super-G, and super combined; together with team events.


Para alpine skiers compete in three categories based on their functional ability:  skiing with a visual impairment, sit-skiing and standing skiing for athletes with an arm or leg impairment. A results calculation system allows athletes with different impairments to compete against each other.


The first documented para alpine championships  were held in Austria in 1948, whilst the first Paralympic Winter Games took place in Sweden in 1976 featuring the para alpine skiing disciplines slalom and giant slalom. World Para Alpine Skiing acts as the International Federation for the sport.
