Trail ratings:
Ski areas use a system that rates trails compared to other trails within their area. Green circle = Easiest, Blue square = More difficult, Black diamond = Most difficult. The degree of difficulty can vary widely from one area to another. The larger mountains frequently label runs ” Double Black Diamonds” to let skiers know that these runs may be extremely difficult. Skiers comfortable on Black Diamonds at a smaller area often find Black Diamonds at larger mountains beyond their ability. All skiers are advised to sample the Blue Square runs at any unfamiliar area and work their way up to the more difficult runs to prevent getting in over their heads.

Glades: Some trail listings do not list glades which most larger areas now offer. The percentage of runs covered by snowmaking typically is confined to trails with snowmaking hitting only the fringes of glades near trails. Skiers must understand that glade skiing means exposure to natural conditions, ungroomed snow with no manmade base.
