Alpine Skiing
Alpine skiing otherwise known as downhill skiing is where the athlete has a pair of long flat runners of plastic, metal, or wood that curve upward in front and attached to a boot or foot for gliding or travelling over snow.

In competition speed and accuracy are important. Alpine skiing evolved from cross-country skiing after the invention of the ski lift and was first incorporated into the Asian Winter Games in 1986.
