  1. Piste

    A piste is a marked ski run or path down a mountain for snow skiing, snowboarding, or other mountain sports. This European term is French and synonymous with trail, slope, or groomed run in North America. Pronunciation varies slightly in English, with British English using a long "e,", and American pronunciation using a short "i". Increasingly, North Americans employ its common European antonym, off piste, to describe backcountry skiing, especially when referring to skiing outside officially approved areas of a ski resort. Individual trails on pistes are graded by difficulty using ski trail ratings.
