I have never skied
I’ve just learned to make a beginner’s turn.
It’s rough but I can manage. I feel ready
to ride the chairlift.
I can link turns without stopping. I feel
good on the chairlift and easy green terrain.
I’m keeping my skis parallel at the end of
the turn with some skidding. I am comfortable
on most green terrain and may be ready to try
some easy blue runs.
My turns are rhythmic and my skis are usually
parallel throughout the turn. I feel comfortable
on all green and some blue runs.
I am confident on most groomed blue terrain
and ready to explore some groomed blacks.
My skis are always parallel.
I am making reliable linked parallel turns
with my poles an all blue runs, but need
work on controlling my speed. Black runs
are okay when they are groomed.
I ski blue bumps and groomed blacks, but
no double blacks (yet). I am linking short-
radius turns in the fall line. I can ski advanced
terrain on all four mountains.
Blacks are a piece of cake: I am working on
tactics and lines in extreme terrain.
Epic. Please apply for a coaching position.
I have never snowboarded.
I can slide across the hill both ways and stop.
I’m starting to get the hang of this. I can ride a chairlift.
I can control my speed and direction while moving across
the hill and am starting to turn.
I can turn in both directions and am starting
to link my turns.
I am linking skidded turns while controlling
my speed and starting to try blue terrain.
I am confident on most blue terrain under
good conditions. I am beginning to carve
my turns or ride switch (the opposite direction).
I am fine tuning dynamic turns and seek more
challenging situations, including riding bumps,
riding switch and dealing with varying snow
I am confident performing dynamic turns, riding
switch and exploring techniques in all snow
conditions, terrain, pipes and parks.
I can ride the entire mountain with confidence and ease.
I am working on tactics and new moves in extreme
terrain, pipes and parks.
Prove it! Then register for the X-Games in Aspen.
