Alpine Ski Racing

Alpine Ski Racing simply put is skiing around poles or gates in the quickest possible time using alpine skis, also known as downhill skis.  Modern day skis have fixed heels so your whole foot is attached to the ski and metal edges to allow the skier to grip as they travel down the slope. There are a number of different disciplines in Alpine Ski Racing, which you can find out more about below.  In Scotland there are races out there for everyone, from complete novices to World Cup racers.
