    Is it just a name for a slope in skiing or is it a slope for technicians?

    "I'd like to ski on the technician slope."

    I ski. I've never heard of a "technician slope".

    I hate to guess, but it could be poor English by somebody referring to "technical skiing."

    See: Technical Skiing

    But technical skiing is skiing using good technique as opposed to just throwing yourself down the mountain. "I'd like to ski on the good technique slope" :confused:o_O

    This Wiki article speaks of the grades of slope - it may help the OP: Piste - Wikipedia
     
  9. In some languages they refer to "technical" slope meaning a slope that is not necesarily extremely difficult of hazardous but one that presents a number of features that allow for the use of many different technical skills. Maybe Korean is one of the languages and the author made a direct literal translation into English.
