Anyway. @anachronism
, when you are in Taos next, let me know I can hook you up with a few instructors that can show you the groomers hiding in the bumps. I've worked with one for the last ten years. One of the very few instructors that I'll pay to ski with - I'm cheap.  

When I actually get old, I'm sure I will redefine what it means to be a contrarian, crotchety old bastard.

Tried those! Ouch!

What about the ones on the skier's left on the Expo? biggrin.gif

Never tried those, my friend who watched level 4 candidates struggle through it told me they shouldn't even be called moguls!

I posted this in the Janne Lahtela thread, but it belongs here too.

 

It seems to me that both skiers (Dan and Janne)  use similar ski motion to control their descent, but it also seems to me that Janne powers the ski rotation mostly through tipping and snow-ski interaction, while Dan is using a lot more pivoting of (unweighted) skis through direct body torque. 

 

Perhaps if you rapidly pivot your skis to a steering angle, turn briefly and repeat in the bumps it will be harder on your knees.
