Past seasons, if people look hard enuf, they can score on great deals. Dynastar twister and K2 mambas for less than 250 to 350 easy,that's what my last sets of skis cost. Hart and Volkl have priced their skis on the high end.
IMO, the mogul skis remind me of an all mountain circa 2000 but with a softer tip. If that means I have to front load my skis more so than present day skis... so be it.
No my answer is stop complaining about something that most mountains and skiers don't care about, and therefore aren't going to fix, because they don't see it as being broken. Props to those who like skiing moguls, and those seeking to improve; just don't expect the industry to cater to you, as you represent only a very tiny segment of the entire skiing population.
You could try appealing to your local mountain's management, but it seems like a prerequisite of being a mountain manager is to be completely out of touch with the majority of your clientele, (or at least the minority that can actually ski), and to perceive any suggestion for an approach other than your own as a threat. The proof that the grooming model is obsolete can probably be obtained by spending a single afternoon skiing your mountain, and witnessing firsthand where people ski most; at least at my mountain, it's not the groomers, but good luck convincing the average desk-jockey mountain ops manager that that's the case. "We had to groom _______, it's the only intermediate connection from ______ to _______." "It's a holiday week, and we need to offer more terrain to intermediates", etc., etc.
Fortunately, my mountain is too big and has too much gnarly terrain to groom everything every night, so there are always some bumps to ski somewhere, if there's nothing else going on. Some smaller mountains do leave at least a small percentage of their terrain alone for bumps to develop, and some even go so far as to cat bumps for the public. If your mountain insists on flattening everything, you could try appealing to mountain management, but I would try to back up your argument with something like a petition from paying customers, otherwise you'll likely be dismissed as a threatening, obsolete old fart.
As I said in another post, any areas that leaves a trail ungroom or seeds a run make the place seem bigger. Here's one of the feeder hills in my area, they have been leaving one run ungroom, 2011 was a good year had some good snow dumps but I had a lot of BS to deal with. Last year, I went there alot at night and the mogul trail had plenty of traffic.
