We are all intermediates, unless you're like a guy I know who was raised at Jackson Hole, skied Corbett's by age 7, practiced with Olympic skiers, later was crew chief at Jackson Hole's overnight grooming team and got to take first runs any morning he liked before heading home to bed.
That's expert. What are you?
Not an intermediate. I agree expert can be overused, but intermediate isn't the right substitute either. "Advanced" is a good term that I reckon would apply to many here.
