The simplest form of alpine skiing. As the name suggests, skiers have to ski down a predetermined slope, with minimal turns and maximum speeds to reach the finish line. Skiers can reach speeds of 130 km/h.

The vertical drop of the slope in downhill should be between 800-1100m (for men) and 450-800m (for women).
Each competitor is allowed one ski down the course and the fastest to cross the line is deemed the winner.
