Any recommendations for frontside skis that are good in moguls. I don't want a mogul specific ski.

Good frontsiders that can handle bumps?

Fischer Motive 80 or 84.

Peak Series is awful, do not go with them.

 

I further the Motive 80 however, great flex for bumps, perfect width for soft bumps, but narrow enough for when they're rock hard.

 

And would work great on groomers too.

I second this recommendation: get the 78 if you don't need the extra width and are skiing primarily hard snow.  2 of the 5 best bump skiers on our local hill own either the Peak 78 or Peak 84; great bump ski!

Another shout out for the Fischer skis in bumps.  They have something going on with their designs that just is right with moguls.

I might reccomend just about any consumer (not race stock) Slalom Race ski in a 160-165 length.  I have a pair of Blizzard SLR Race Mag IQ 160 and they are huge fun in the bumps that I like to ski after my races.  My last pair of SL skis were Volkl P50's and they were also a hoot in the bumps. 

 

I am able to ski bumps with these race skis old school style or you can put them on edge and actually carve through the bumps.  They are very quick turning and because they are race skis, they also hold really well on hard pack and ice.  They are also big fun on groomers when your kness and thighs are screaming and you need a break.

 

Good luck,
