This is my frist try ski on the runs this year on second day.

 

Am I skiing on the bumps/moguls line?

 

How about this bumps/moguls skiing?

Not entirely sure I understand the question. Are you trying to figure out if you're skiing a zipper line? If so, the answer is no. It is really hard to do any kind of MA from a POV video, especially one where you can't see the skis at all. But it looks like you're hitting the troughs in one direction, and turning on the backside of the bump when going in the other direction. Nothing wrong with that, it's one way to use the bumps. It seems like you're following a single line of bumps, and keeping a fairly steady speed.

Norman,

 

I like what you are doing here in the video, basically turning where and when you want.

 

Granted this is a single line zipper, but you make several turns "into" the mogul sidewall and link the next turn on the smooth top or backside.  Not easy to do in such a harshly rutted zipperline.

 

I'd think if you take the same approach into bigger, steeper natural terrain, you do just fine and have a great time.

 

Get yourself on a real mountain and let'r rip!

Looks like your a little to the skier's right of the zipperline.  Skiing the zipperline would mean going into the deepest holes that I see there.  It is hard to tell things with POV videos.  I can't tell you much more.

Thank you every one.

Sorry I have not front view videos at this year.

So I try to make slow view video.

Norman calls the line he skies "straight line bump skiing".

 

Here is one front view of Norman in Japan

 

I got permission from both Norman and David to post their videos here for opinions. I only have two simple questions

 

1. who is the better skier? (Norman or David)

2. The better skier is assigned a value of 10 on a scale of 1-10. How would you rate the other skier?

 

Because of the language barrier so we need unambiguous answer. I think all videos are from January of this year in Japan, at the same resort and maybe the same location but different time. David is still in Japan right now attempting to ski all the lines that Norman has skied

 

Norman also want reader to know that he only does the traverse to find larger bump or deeper trough.
