Alpine Skiing: Athletes are divided into different classes according to their ability. The same events as in non-disabled skiing take place at the Paralympics: Downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom, and Slalom. Skiers with visual impairments use a guide to direct them through courses. Other adaptive equipment used in this sport are mono skis, outriggers and prosthetics.
Cross-Country Skiing (Nordic): Cross country skiers based on their disability either use traditional skis or use a sit ski to compete. Skiers with visual impairments use a guide. Athletes can race either in classical or free events and can compete as a team or individually. Nordic events range between 2.5 km to 20 km in distance.
Sled Hockey: Sled hockey is one of the newest sports in Paralympic competition and seems to be one of the fastest-growing sports. Six players, including the goalie, are on the ice at all times. Competitors sit on sleds with two blade runners underneath the sled. Players use sticks with a spike-end and a blade-end. The spike-end allows them to push across the ice. Hockey games are divided into three 15-minute stop periods.
