  Alpine skiing (or downhill skiing) is a recreational activity and sport involving sliding down snow-covered hills with long skis attached to each foot. Alpine skiing takes place at specially developed ski resorts where trees are cut, slopes are manipulated, snow is groomed and avalanches are controlled to facilitate the activity.

   The downhill is alpine skiing's showpiece event, and the one with the longest course and the highest speeds.

  
The world record was sponsored by Grossglockner Bergbahnen Touristik GmbH.
