So this just occoured to me:
Back in the day we skied on 210 and generally speaking made short turns on steep runs. Lots of people doing this, even over a relativley short period of time created the moguls that we all know and love. This was true also on powder days, where big pillowy powder bumps where created. Good times.
Advance now to today. Generally most people are now on FAT skis, so they can rip "Big Lines"....ie make larger GS style turns regardless of the pitch. Now, wouldn't one then expect that the moguls created from that, would be different to the "traditional" ones? I figure, these moguls should appear much bigger around, and more progressive, like upside down dinner plates, rather then the normal upside down coffee mugs (if you can follow that analogy).
Of course thou, we dont see that, moguls appear today as they always have, even on powder days, even on moderate pitches. How come? Could it be that fat skis in reality havent changed the style of skiing as much as the ads and hype would like us to believe? Or is there another reason?
What say you?
