Ski courses for skiers moving on to red runs. Here’s a surprise!
This picture shows the approximate angle of inclination of red runs everywhere. Ski resorts all of the world adhere to these protocols. They have agreed angles – with small variations – for blue ski runs, reds, blacks, and of course green beginner slopes.
In my experience skiers find it surprising that, for example, a red run is no steeper than shown. They always seem steeper when you are skiing on them, and even steeper than that when you are standing at the top.
