Luge and Skeleton are somewhat similar to bobsledding, except it's just one person, on a mostly-flat sled, with basically no protection other than a helmet. Luge sleds are a bit longer, and the athlete lays on their back on the sled, and goes down the track feet first, where Skeleton lays face-down on the sled, and goes down head first. Nordic combined is Cross Country and Ski jumping with nordic skis (the heel is not connected to the ski (as opposed to alpine skis, where the heel locks in)).

So why are downhill, slalom, and giant slalom lumped together under "Alpine", but ski jumping, biathalon, cross-country listed separately and not lumped together under "Nordic"?

@prs17 Probably because ski jumping and cross-country skiing are quuuiiiiteeee a bit different (and no ski jumper also competes in cross-country and vice versa; that's why there's a separate sport, called nordic combined). Meanwhile, all the alpine skiing categories are much more similar than the nordic skiing categories (you ski down a slope while maneuvering the gates). That's why a whole bunch of skier compete in more than one category (usually the "technical" skiers do slalom and GS, while the "speed" skiers do super-GS and downhill, but there have been many skiers in the past who competed in ALL of the 4 major categories). Sorry, but ski jumping and cross-country skiing are way too different to lump together under the "nordic skiing" umbrella term.

Yes. Alpine skiing encompasses downhill, slalom, giant slalom, super G and alpine skiing combined (downhill + slalom).
