    Skis cautiously and prefer skiing at slower speeds. Happy on easy or moderate, Green or Blue slopes.Novice/cautious skiing at lighter release/retention settings. Entry level skiers uncertain of their classification. Skiing more confidently at faster speeds. Preferring mixed terrain and steeper gradients, typically Blue or Red slopes.. Average/moderate skiing at average release/retention settings. Aggressive, higher speed skiing on all runs, in all conditions and venturing off piste.
