Rosa Khutor Alpine Center is situated on the northern slope of the Aibga ridge.

This unique Olympic venue includes 43 ha of alpine courses of a total length of 9 km. All the ski runs meet all the requirements of and are homologated by the International Ski Federation (FIS). The ski runs are situated at an altitude of 960 to 2045 meters and share the same finishing zone.

The area where the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center is situated is the most suitable and attractive for alpine skiing in Krasnaya Polyana. The characteristics of the slopes allowed for the construction of ski runs for all types of alpine competitions, including the ones classified as «Olympic» by the FIS. All the ski runs were designed by the renown FIS alpine courses architect and Sapporo'72 Olympic champion Berbard Russi.

The capacity of the venue is 7.5 thousand spectators.

The venue was commissioned by the end of 2010. In February 2011 the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center welcomed its first test events: stages of the Alpine Ski Europe Cup. One year later, in February 2012, Rosa Khutor hosted stages of the Alpine Ski World Cup for the first time in Russian sport's history. In 2013 the Olympic courses of the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center harbored the final of the Alpine Ski Europe Cup and the final of the IPC Alpine Ski World Cup. 

ALPINE SKI COMPETITIONS INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES:

DOWNHILL 

 

Downhill is one of the disciplines of the Alpine skiing. The discipline involves racing on a specially groomed piste and reaching the gates in the shortest time. 

Racers on a typical international-level course exceed speeds of 140 km/h on some sections, and can fly for 40-50 meters on jumps.

The course is designed to challenge the best skiers in a variety of ways: skiing at high speeds, through challenging turns, shallow dips, flats, and small airs (jumps).

SUPER GIANT SLALOM

 

Super Giant Slalom orSuper G is a racing discipline of alpine skiing.

Along with the faster downhill, it is regarded as a «speed» event, in contrast to the technical events giant slalom and slalom.

The Super G competitions are composed of one single run.

GIANT SLALOM

 

Giant Slalom (GS) is an alpine skiing discipline. It involves skiing between sets of poles (gates) spaced at a greater distance to each other than in slalom but less than in Super-G.

Giant slalom and slalom make up the technical events in alpine ski racing. This category separates them from the speed events of super-G and downhill. The technical events are normally composed of two runs, held on different courses on the same ski run.

SLALOM

 

Slalom (from the Norwegian slalåm, «sla,» meaning slightly inclining hillside, and «låm,» meaning track after skis) is an alpine skiing discipline, involving skiing between poles (gates) spaced much closer together than in Giant Slalom, Super-G or Downhill, thereby causing quicker and shorter turns

A course is constructed by laying out a series of gates. Gates are formed by alternating pairs of red and blue poles. The skier must pass between the two poles forming the gate. (Strictly speaking, the tips of both skis and the skier's feet must pass between the poles.) A course has 55 to 75 gates for men and 40 to 60 gates for women.

COMBINED

 

Alpine skiing combined is an alpine skiing event. Although not technically a discipline of its own, it is sometimes referred to as a fifth alpine discipline, along with downhill, super G, giant slalom, and slalom. In a combined event, the winner is the skier with the fastest aggregate time.

A classic Combined event consists of a single run of slalom and a downhill run. Each competition is held separately.
