Alpine

Alpine-style or downhill skiing as a sport separate from cross country or touring skiing, first emerged in Canada in the 1930s, some eighty years after the introduction of the innovative Telemark ski technique in Norway. Unlike the traditional ski with similar dimensions from its tip to its tail, the newer ski had a narrower waist allowing it to be turned more easily to control its speed on a slope.
