Skier Rider Ability Level The following gradients were used to determine the skier ability level of the mountain terrain:

Skier Ability Slope Gradient
Beginner 8 to 12%
Novice to 25% (short pitches to 30%)
Low Intermediate to 30% (short pitches to 35%)
Intermediate to 40% (short pitches to 45%)
Advanced Intermediate to 50% (short pitches to 55%)
Expert over 50% (maximum of 80%)

Exceptions to these standards occur when access to a trail is limited to a higher ability level trail. For example, if a novice trail can only be accessed by a low intermediate trail, than it will be designated as a low intermediate trail rather than novice.
