Rules to Play Down Hill Skiing
Mens and womens alpine skiing both debuted on the Olympic programme in 1936 at Garmisch Partenkirchen. The only event that year was a combined competition of both downhill and slalom. In 1948, this was held along with separate downhill and slalom races. Four years later the giant slalom was added and in 1988 the super giant slalom became a fourth separate event.
