Surprisingly little info. out there re: this topic, perhaps someone will prove me wrong? Quite likely, actually.

Here's some from Summer Gravity Camps in Whistler, they want your $ though, so...

ABILIY LEVEL
What's your ability level?
At SGC we work with all levels of riders. If you can ride a mountain bike, we want you here!

NOVICE RIDER:
Have mountain biked off road on flat terrain. Can ride single track, but has had very little downhill riding experience. No jumping experience at all.

INTERMEDIATE RIDER:
Confident on most single track. Have ridden downhill a little bit. Still cautious with speed and the more challenging steeper terrain. Have very little jumping experience.

ADVANCED RIDER:
Is confident riding on technical terrain with rocks, roots, logs, drops in most conditions. Have spent some time in the air jumping. Ready to turn it up a notch and learn how to go faster, ride steep terrain, take bigger air, and learn some cool tricks.

EXPERT RIDER:
Rides very aggressively and is comfortable biking over anything; logs, rocks, roots, steps, and drops at most speeds. Very physically fit. Likes to take air and do tricks. Looking to refine your riding and learn more tricks from the masters.
