Between bunny slopes for beginners and double black diamond runs for highly skilled skiers, intermediate skiers might feel left out. But there’s no reason to feel that way. Because even if your skiing skills are good enough to graduate from the green runs and you don’t feel confident enough to try those steep cliffs and chutes, Truckee has a lot of intermediate runs and slightly challenging terrains to suit you. In fact, many of the groomed trails in and around the area are designed for skiers with intermediate skills. And almost every resort and skiing area has some runs for your level of expertise, make it one of the top things to do in Truckee.
Slopes and Trails for Intermediate Skiing
As one of the most popular activities here in Truckee, skiing attracts fans passionate about this sport from all over the country. But not all of them have the same skill levels. And while it’s easy to find designated slopes for beginners, intermediate trails are not that many. However, some resorts such as Northstar have about 58 trails out of their total 98 trails well suited for people with little experience in skiing. That’s almost 60 percent of the trails there. And that’s just one resort. Many other resorts also make sure to cater to skiers of all skill levels.
Another issue that faces people who feel they’re too good to be flopping around in the snow on beginner slopes but dare not try black diamond trails is that they don’t know how to improve their skills. Should they risk it at advanced runs? Well, you don’t have to do that. If you want to progress forward and hone your skiing skills, you can take intermediate lessons. Lessons are one of the top things to do in Truckee and professional instructors will help you get over your shortcomings and learn all the needed skills, from how to perform carved and quicker turns to getting enough confidence to increase your speed. You’ll also know all about the different terrains and which ones to choose for your own level.
