      When you rate trails, i.e. green, blue, etc., does personal fitness factor in or do you base it solely on skill, tech, etc.?


      In my own personal opinion, personal fitness does not factor in to my ratings.


      For example, a sustained featureless/techless climb doesn’t warrant a higher rating because I’m out of shape for a climb that takes no more skill than knowing how to balance on and pedal a bicycle.

      Right, the idea is to focus solely on technical trail features. So just because a trail is long, or climbs a lot, shouldn’t affect the rating. However things like steepness DO factor in since that requires skill in addition to physical fitness.
