Medalists

Alpine skiing has been contested at every Winter Olympics since [[1 mpics|1906]], when a combined event was held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. From 194880, the Winter Olympics also served as the World Championships in Olympic years (with separate competitions held in even-numbered non-Olympic years). During 1956-80, extra World Championships medals were awarded in the combined using the results of the slalom and downhill, since the combined event was absent from the Winter Olympics from 1952-84, returning in 1988. Since 1985, the World Championships have been scheduled every odd-numbered year, independent of the Winter Olympics.
