Alpine skiing.jpg


Also known as downhill skiing, alpine skiing refers to the sport that consists of sliding down ski slopes (or snow-covered hills) on skis with fixed heel bindings.
This activity requires assistance, such as a lift, to get the skier to the top of the hill, since their equipment does not allow for walking or hiking up ski slopes. The competitions for alpine skiing are divided into speed (Super-G) and technical events (giant slalom), with alpine skiing being an official sport for the Winter Olympics since 1936 (with the exception of 1940).

-Elbrus Isakov represented Azerbaijan in men's slalom on 1998 at Nagano, Japan and on 2002  in Salt Lake City, USA.

Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, pairs, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport to be included in the Olympic Games, when contested at the 1908 Olympics in London. The Olympic disciplines are men's singles, women's singles, pair skating, and ice dance; the four individual disciplines are also combined into a team event, first included in the Winter Olympics in 2014. From intermediate through senior-level competition, skaters generally perform two programs (the short program and the free skate), which, depending on the discipline , may include spins, jumps, moves in the field, lifts, throw jumps, death spirals, and other elements or moves.

Snowboarding is a recreational and competitive activity that involves descending a snow-covered slope while standing on a snowboard that is almost always attached to a rider’s feet. It features in the Winter Olympic Games and Winter Paralympic Games.
The development of snowboarding was inspired by skateboarding, sledding, surfing, and skiing. It was developed in the United States in the 1960s, became a Winter Olympic Sport at Nagano in 1998 and featured in the Winter Paralympics at Sochi in 2014.


Ski mountaineering (abbreviated to skimo) racing is a human-powered endurance competition that involves climbing mountains on skis and/or by foot and in many race disciplines, passing through a series of transitions before descending on skis.
Skimo races are timed events that follow an established course through challenging winter alpine terrain.

Participation in international competitions:
- Nasir Farkhadov and Elbrus Azizov competed at the ISMF World Championship 2019 in Switzerland.
