Alpine Skiing Betting Odds
Alpine skiing is not only a race between skiers fighting for the crystal globe — it is also a battle between the skier, the mountain and the clock.
The Alpine skiing season is divided into several specialties: Downhill, Super-G, Giant Slalom, Slalom and Parallel - a total of 40 events each season. The vast majority of the venues are in the Alps, except for a few events in the USA and Scandinavia.
Betting on alpine skiing
Throughout the Alpine skiing season, the main competition is the World Cup, where the winner of the overall classification wins the big crystal globe. There are also small crystal globes awarded for each specialty. Place your bets on the slalom (H) now.
The World Cup Alpine Skiing season runs from the end of October to mid-March with over 20 events. Finals are organized as the last event of the season.
Generally, the results of an Alpine Skiing World Cup season take into account the performances during the Olympic Games and the World Championships, which take place every two years. Thus, three seasons out of four, skiers have a second benchmark competition to win. However, the international competitions are held over one day, where reaching a peak in form is important, whereas the World Cup of skiing is played over time, and consistent performances are crucial.

Recommended bets on Alpine skiing
To win the Crystal Globe this season, competitors will have to be consistent across all disciplines, as there will be as many technical races as speed races.
The FIS organizers had favoured the technical events for too long because it was easier to cancel a speed race (downhill and super-G) on long trails that were difficult to manage for the resorts due to unfavourable weather conditions.
The pure downhillers are bound to be more motivated this season. Participants, who are playing to win in the two-speed disciplines and can score points in a third event, will surely be at the top of the rankings.
