Just a little different slant on Todd's remark. -- The question was addressed as to your ability in the sport. The term professional in that context would encompass those who have or have had skill levels where they were able to generate income at a competitive level.
I guess there should be some discussion on the difference between a ski professional and a professional skier. Football and basketball coaches, trainers, and staff are all professional people, but they are never referred to as professional athletes. The same should hold true in the ski world.
I am adding this note because it seems a little out of line that we would have so many professional grade skiers on this forum. ... But then, we do also have one Ski God!!
