Carving is for the runs that are not challenging.
Of course that the groomers are ideal carving conditions, appropriate width of the trail helps too. Chopped up runs are doable, as well as ice.
"Easy" and "not chellenging" is rellative, I guess. For most of the people a black diamond is not considered easy. I know several people who can carve blacks, as long as it's groomed, hardpack included. A groomed blue square should be carvable by any intermediate carver.
