1998
Until 1998, alpine events were only for standing classes – athletes with a vision impairment, limb loss, cerebral palsy or acquired brain injury etc.
2012
In 2012, Para-snowboard was introduced to the Paralympic program as a discipline of alpine skiing. Snowboard cross competition at the Paralympic Winter Games is currently only open to athletes with a physical impairment in their lower body.
1976
Two alpine skiing events (slalom and giant slalom) were introduced at the first Paralympic Winter Games in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, in 1976.
In 2015, researchers in Sweden were working on research to develop a classification system for para-alpine and para-Nordic skiing to allow for the future inclusion of skiers with intellectual disabilities.
