Levels for Ski Goddesses!
Please note the level descriptions are an indicator of where you are at now. You will want to progress to the next level or even more on your course.
If you have had an injury, very bad experience or know you prefer to take it steady opt for the level below your maximum ability. If you ski with confidence, feel ok with speed and are generally “up for it” you may consider the level above what you have done so far.
Either way we will need to have a phone chat to confirm you are in the right group.
|Levels||Description||FEAR LEVEL! I get scared with:...|
|Novice or novice plus. Can snowplough turn on green. May have done a blue or two, but struggle with them.||Blue runs, speed, lack of control|
|Bronze||Can do parallel on green but mostly snowplough. Happy to snowplough on easy blues but still working on co-ordination and skill.||Speed, some blues, edge of piste, narrows|
|Silver||Mostly parallel and happy to go fast on green. Often parallel on easy blues. Working on comfort and fluidity||Speed, steeper blue runs and all red runs, narrows, ice|
|Gold||Often skis parallel on blues with good technique but can stiffen up and lose fluidity. Working on ski intuition to make it feel natural. Can “get down” easy reds.||Challenging part of reds, narrows, icy, speed.|
|Bronze||Pretty happy, relaxed and parallel on all blues. Happy on several reds but can hesitate and not know how to handle challenging sections||Ice or bumps, narrow reds or high speed|
|Silver||Can ski parallel on most reds and happy to go for it on challenging sections but aware that you may not ski your best on them.||Very bad conditions, most off piste|
|Gold||Can ski parallel on all reds and on all sections. Happy on steep and going quite fast. Working now on versatility and more advanced techniques to enjoy all types of piste skiing. Ie. carving, dynamic short turns, bumps etc. Will try a little easy off piste.||Very bad conditions, any challenging off piste.|
|Bronze||Good technique on all reds. Can ski challenging sections with confidence and speed. Can carve on easy terrain. Had some off piste experience – working on developing advanced techniques such as carving, off piste and bumps.||Not much! Maybe steep or bumpy off piste|
|Silver||Competent on all pistes. Can carve on blue. Done a fair bit of off piste enjoys it and would like to do more. A fast moving course with techniques to try whilst on the go.||Not much! 😉|
