The sports discipline that tries to the answer the question who can make it down to the bottom of the mountain first?  One of the pillars of the sports program of the Universiade, alpine skiing is the discipline with the highest level of participation at the event, with almost all the countries present at the Universiade usually entering at least one athlete in the downhill, super G, giant slalom and slalom events. These athletes also participate in the assigning of the medal for the combined event, which brings together results in at least three out of the four competitions.

At the 2015 Winter Universiade in Granada, the alpine skiing events will take place on ski runs in Sierra Nevada.
