2015: The year ahead in alpine skiing

Image holder for not sport news.

Don’t let the absence of events here fool you.  There is a lot more going on, and the sport is definitely worth checking out in person.  People of all disability types compete including ID, deaf, VI and physical disabilities.  Because this is not a Paralympic year or the year before a Paralympic year, the schedule is not as heavy as it often is.
