For the first time since 1952, the Olympic Alpine program was changed, this time by the addition of two events for both men and women – the super-G, or super giant slalom, and the Alpine combined. The combined was a combination of downhill and slalom, and had been on the Olympic program in 1936 and 1948. The combined was contested on the World Cup circuit since 1975, and the super-G had been a World Cup event since 1983. All the Alpine events were raced at the Nakiska Ski Resort, on Mount Allan, 83 km. west of Calgary.
