I would say I am firmly in the "advanced" group, but how do you know when you have arrived at the expert level?
Is it one of those, "if you have to ask, you are not an expert" things; or is it more definable than that?
What do you guys say?
From the first thread VA underlined. I'll add that in terms of ability, an expert skier can ski any open marked run without fear, worry, or much risk of falling or needing to stop or almost stop and shop for turns. Some experts look better than others, but none of them are going to look like a cow on ice.
