Skier Levels

Determine Your Skier Level

Please have a look below to work out what level you are currently skiing at. If you aren’t sure or just want to find out more, please feel free to email, or call us.


You are starting out in skiing or telemark. Possibly you might have put skis on before but it is essentially your first go at the sport


Your general choice of run depends on snow conditions as well as your own ability. On blue and red runs you can ski parallel turns. You know how to edge and skid your skis, and most of the time you can control your speed. You are prepared to ski with a little speed, and may be tempted to ski black runs “on a good day.” You hope to progress to steeper pistes, start off-piste descents and runs with bumps.


You have conquered the intermediate level, and most of the time you are happy on all runs, including steep black ones! You can vary the size and speed of your turns, ski the more open pistes with speed, and manage medium bumps in control as well as having started to ski off-piste. You aspire to learn more advanced techniques, both on- and off-piste, to handle steeper slopes, varied snow conditions and greater exposure.


Now we’re cooking…… and the mountain is really becoming your playground! Searching out the steeper gullies, bigger bumps and more difficult terrain, you are happy skiing quickly and enjoy the challenges thrown at you. You’re also taking an interest in the snow-pack and want to learn a bit more. Every day is a “good day”!
