on the whistler ADVANCED video it says quote "able to link turns on easy blue runs..." I cant help but think "dude.. i hope you can link turns on blue if u call yourself 'advanced' level snowboarder."

i dunno, i just dont like the idea of levels being diluted. If you are an advanced or expert rider.. you are pretty damn good.

The danger here, i think, is it would be a marketing advantage for a resort to be able to send students away with inflated assessments. Like a driving school that pumps out shitty drivers who are sketchy.
