What Defines a Good Skier?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So, it's a pretty simple question. What defines a good skier? What separates them from the rest of the pack? Does one need to be able to do everything in every condition to be considered a good skier, or is simply being good at one type of skiing enough? (I feel like someone is about to quote me an interpretation of the PSIA skiier levels...) More importantly, what defines YOU as a skier?

But here is the simplest determination I have ever found ask someone what that they ski/want to ski if your with them. If they reply with a trail rating 99.9% they aren't that good even if they reply "Oh, I  like to ski double black" If they reply with a type of terrain then they are much more likely to be at least "good"
