LEVEL 1: Never ever

Terrain: Beginner Conveyer, flat to gentle slopes
I've never skied or snowboarded, but I'm excited to learn!


Terrain: Beginner conveyer + Shoshone Chairlift, gentle slopes to easy Greens

Alpine: I've skied before and know the basics like sliding, slightly changing directions and coming to a stop. 

Snowboard: I've snowboarded before. I feel pretty good at sliding, doing the falling leaf and knowing basics like using body movements to go from toe side to heel side, can stop and fall safely. 


Terrain: Shoshone Chairlift, easy green to difficult green

Alpine: I'm gaining confidence in my abilities and can link my turns together smoothly. I'm comfortable on a chairlift, can ski various sized turns on green terrain and can maintain consistent speeds. 

Snowboard: I'm gaining confidence in my abilities and can smoothly link my turns on green terrain while controlling my speed through my turns. I'm comfortable on a chairlift and able to traverse a catwalk on one edge.


Terrain: All mountain, easy blue to difficult blue

Alpine: I'm consistently skiing mostly parallel turns and maintaining consistent speed on blue terrain. I also know how and when to use. my poles. I'm ready to explore areas of the mountain and feel ready to ski off trail. 

Snowboard: I'm consistently using body movements to control my turns while maintaining consistent speed on blue terrain. I can easily change from my toe edge to heel edge with slight movements while traversing. I'm ready to explore more areas of the mountain and feel ready to snowboard off trail.
