Alpine skiing at the 2022 Winter Olympics was held at the Yanqing National Alpine Ski Centre in Yanqing District, China.[1] The competitions took place from 6 to 20 February 2022.

Speed events were held on "Rock" course and technical events on "Ice River" course, for both men and women. Team event was held on "Rainbow."

A total of 306 quota spots (153 per gender) were distributed to the alpine skiing, a reduction of 14 from 2018.[2] Eleven events were contested: five for men, five for women, and one mixed (team).[3]

Qualification[edit]

A maximum of 306 quota spots were available to athletes to compete at the games. A maximum of twenty-two athletes could be entered by a National Olympic Committee, with a maximum of eleven men or eleven women.[4]

On January 24, 2022, the IOC granted four extra male quotas while the FIS began investigating the legitimacy of some low level qualifying events.[5]

Competition schedule[edit]

The competition schedule was altered from the original schedule due to weather conditions in Yanqing.[6] All times were local (UTC+8)[7].
