Alpine skiing at the 1984 Winter Olympics consisted of six events, held near Sarajevo, Yugoslavia (now Bosnia). The men's races were held at Bjelašnica, the women's at Jahorina from February 13-19, 1984.
This was the first Winter Olympics which did not serve as World Championships for alpine skiing.
Due to weather delays (a blizzard), the downhill races were postponed several days and run after the giant slalom races.

Famous quotes containing the words winter and/or alpine:
“February is a suitable month for dying. Everything around is dead, the trees black and frozen so that the appearance of green shoots two months hence seems preposterous, the ground hard and cold, the snow dirty, the winter hateful, hanging on too long.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
“The shades of night were falling fast,
As through an Alpine village passed
A youth, who bore, mid snow and ice,
A banner with the strange device,
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (18091882)
