Yawgoo Valley Snow Sports School Experience Level Chart
Please Review BEFORE REGISTRATION

First-Timer: I have never been on skis or a snowboard OR I am not yet able to stop with confidence on a gentle slope.

Level 1: I have taken at least one lesson or had some basic experience. Skiers: I can move forward on flat terrain, climb and glide on slight inclines in a wedge. Snowboarders: I can skate on flat terrain, make toe and heel side J- turns on slight inclines with front foot strapped in.

Level 2: I am exploring green terrain. Skiers: I can skate on flat terrain. On easy green terrain, I can change wedge size while gliding, make shallow turns to J-turns and stop. Snowboarders: I can perform skidded traverses and C-turns in both directions with both feet strapped in.

Level 3: I am gaining confidence on all green terrain and learning to use the lifts. Skiers: I link wedge turns with speed control on green terrain, can stop and learning to use rope-tows and/or chairlifts. Snowboarders: I can perform C-turns in both directions with speed control, am working on linking S-turns and learning to use the chairlift.

Level 4: I am confident on all green terrain and exploring easy blue terrain. Skiers: I control speed on green and easy blue terrain. Skis begin with a wedge but align to parallel towards the end of the turn. Snowboarders: I am linking skidded S-turns with speed control and shape on green and blue terrain.

Level 5: I am confident on blue terrain and seeking more challenging terrain. Skiers: I am aligning my skis more consistently, starting and finishing turns with parallel skis. I am learning to use ski poles. Snowboarders: I am beginning to carve turns, varying turn radius and evolving from a stacked to more dynamic turn and seeking more challenges such as terrain park features.

Level 6: I am confident on all terrain in GOOD conditions and looking to explore more challenging terrain. I am learning to keep my skis parallel throughout the entire turn (skiers) or fine-tuning carving (snowboarders). and seeking to explore steeps, bumps, glades and varying conditions.
