SKI TRAIL RATINGS



The resorts have the authorization to assign ratings to their own trails, indicating a given trail according to its relative difficulty when compared with other trails at that resort. There is no governing body that can to make this task. As a consequence, identically pitched trails at different resorts can have different ratings. It's fundamental to know the ski trail ratings for a safe mountain. Trail ratings change at different resorts, so, it's important to consider all trails individually and use caution when skiing.
