Default beginner? intermediate?

Random question. Just wanted to know how you know when you have pretty much progressed into intermediate. I can do all blues without too much trouble. I can pretty much bomb them out. My last trip I was able to do some pretty steep groomed blacks and by the end of the day I was pretty close to bombing them by the end of the day. I haven't even started trying to do any freestyle but I plan on working on it alot next season. so am I still a beginner? just curious.

Can't really say without a video. A lot of people say that they bomb down hills but in reality they do the exact opposite of bombing.

Or they are exactly like a bomb.. reckless and destructive


If you can do black runs without being horizontal the whole time I'd say that I would consider you definately not a beginner anymore.

Bombing is doing a figure 1 down the hill. If you can do that down blacks, there is probably no doubt that you are not a beginner. If you are questioning it, my guess is that you aren't actually bombing the run.

So, no, if you bomb blacks, you are certainly not a beginner. In my opinion, if you aren't leafing anymore, you aren't a beginner.

bombing a hill doesn't require a whole lot of skill, it just shows you have nuts.

well..... I'd say I have a decent amount of speed and in constant control when going down a black diamond run. I wasn't sure on what's meant by bombing blacks though. but definitely not doing falling leafs anywhere. lol. On my last run I tried to go through a pretty steep powder run and found out that's alot different than the black diamond groomed runs. hahaha. but when it got more mellow I was able to figure it out. just curious. thanks for all the responses.

If u can control your board and carve u are an intermediate. Beginners don't have a lot of board control, while advanced riders have serious board control. Intermediate is just the medium.

I think the day you start asking yourself if you were now an intermediate instead of asking you how the fuck you can stay up on a bunny trail and linking more than 2 turns without putting all your weight on the tail of your board while hoping you will regain control of your board or at least, the next crash won't be as bad as the last one.... than you are no more a beginner....
