Can anyone give me some help figuring out what types of runs my family will be skiing in Summit Co.? We all (my 2 kids and myself) just started last Thanksgiving. By the end of the winter we were easily skiing the black diamond runs at Cascade Mt. (home hill near Madison, WI). We are all skiing parallel but not really carving turns with any grace. I am skidding my turns on the steeper stuff but expect to have some lessons this winter and plan to improve further. Daughter will be on ski team, so ditto for her.
So, should I expect blues to be all we would get to? Are blacks out of the question? Not sure what makes it a black out west, steep? bumpy? We are not going to be skiing trees - no experience with that.
