In Alpine skiing there are 4 main types of ski racing, slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and downhill.

In the events you must ski around "gates" without missing a gate or you will get disqualified. You race against people your age and gender and whoever make it down the course the fastest wins!

In cross-country skiing there are two main types, free (skate) and classic style. You ski a prepared track typically between 2 and 50 kilometers long.
