Events[edit]

The program included a total of 20 events, 10 for men and 10 for women. Competitors are divided into three categories: standing, visually impaired, and sitting. Standing skiers are those that have a locomotive disability but are able to use the same equipment as able-bodied skiers, whereas sitting competitors use a sitski. Visually impaired skiers compete with the help of a sighted guide. The skier with the visual impairment and the guide are considered a team, and dual medals are awarded.[1]
