Hello,

please, could you help anyone? Is there any general term for someone who skies purely for pleasure, ie. someone who is not a professional skier?
Many thanks:)

    The word is amateur.

    amateur /ˈæmətə -tʃə -ˌtjʊə; ˌæməˈtɜː/ n
    • a person who engages in an activity, esp a sport, as a pastime rather than professionally or for gain

    Example: John is an enthusiastic amateur skier.

    I see that the term recreational skier is used quite often on the internet so that's another possibility. It also avoids any negative connotations associated with the word amateur.
