    he's probably just backcountry skiing off of the chin the same day. slides do happen in the notch and up high on mansfield sometimes.

    i agree re: turning on top of the bumps. was an epiphany moment when i figured that one out.

    Also agree. In other threads I sometimes see complaints about noobs destroying bumps due to their poor mogul skiing technique. I fear I may be guilty of this because sometimes I am just trying to survive out there. But rarely is there an explanation of exactly what the noobs are doing that is so wrong. If I turn on the top of a mogul and in the process some snow gets pushed into the trough, am I guilty of destroying the mogul ?

    I'm not quite sure what people mean when they say they are turning on the top of a bump and contrast that with standard mogul technique. Bump skiers are also turning as they crest the bump. Granted, most of the turn happens when the skis are unweighted in the absorption phase, but the goal is to complete the turn as close to top of the backside of the mogul as possible to set up for the next bump.

    I don't think poor bump technique is a big issue in firm, well-established bump lines. In soft corn, when the bumps are still setting up, an idiosyncratic turn or two can screw up a nascent line. That's why it's frustrating in late spring when K insists on grooming out Superstar every night.

    Looking 3 bumps ahead and not at the current or next bump helps a ton.

    Trying to teach my wife a very basic fact..if you want to ski moguls well..you have to ski moguls. This is very slowly sinking in..but she doesn't like them.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Have her ski some seeded bumps. My wife will try those a few times a season. It's easier to pick a line and get into a rhythm when the bumps are evenly spaced. It also helps if you can ski out of the bumps and onto a groomed section of the trail if her legs get tired.

    Agreed. The line will look less steep/intimidating and the bumps seem to come at you more slowly.

    My wife hates moguls and has no desire to learn how to ski them. It's a shame, as she'll never realize the joy of glade skiing.
