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.
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
