Ski level – a guide to identifying your abilities

0

Every ski learner has asked themselves at least once – what is my level? If it is the first time you go ski, you know straightforward that you are a total beginner. But what afterward? After taking a few lessons during your previous ski vacation, you know you are still a beginner but are you an improver? How to book your next lessons when you are not sure which group to apply to?

Almost every advanced skier has once been in a group that is not the level he is actually at. This situation may be pretty annoying. If you are at a higher level, you will lose time and money. If you are at a lower level, the abilities of other people in your group may make you feel insufficiently advanced, which in some cases leads to the refusal of further activities.

A guide to trail difficulties!

In today’s blog, we would like to present a short video made from Nakiska Ski Area in Calgary, Canada. It perfectly describes 5 important levels:

  • The first level or so-called on our website “First timer”- never put skis before
  • The second level or so-called on our website “Learner” – can link snowplow turns and control speed on nursery slopes
  • The third level or so-called on our website “Improver” – can make simple parallel turns
  • The fourth level or so-called on our website “Intermediate” – can link confident parallel turns, the technique needs to be improved
  • The fifth level or so-called on our website “Advanced” – can carve clean tracks

Here is the video itself, we present you: Ski level a guide to identifying your abilities

If after watching this video you still don’t feel confident in identifying your level, you can always contact us at info@traventuria.com or directly book private tuition– our instructors will be happy to help you improve no matter your current level!

I've been born by the sea, but since I moved to live in Bansko, I fell in love with the mountains and the beauty of winter! I'm working for Traventuria for 2 years now and they've been the most amazing time in my life! I love skiing, meeting new people, and to infect with emotions about the love of travel. I am writing in this blog to share with you what's new and how to save money on ski packages and ski experiences but get the most of your experience in Borovets. I'll be happy to read your comments under my articles so we can share ideas about what's more to be said for the resort!
