He went to PSI camp. They had the very first line of bumps you see in the pics.

His mogul skiing is already quite good for a kid his age. The main thing he got out of camp were 2:

1) Faster runs

2) POP off the jump

Compare to this TR two summers ago
Thats funny stuff. It was hard to pull info out of him too. Luckily he had a cell phone and we got daily (although spartan) updates... Kinda pieced it together...

It appears that the dark horse has taken the throwdown. Yay for SD's kid!

I went to SMS Momentum bump camp the last two summers at Whistler. I won't be going this year but may be going to Hood's camp in August. I can tell you that my skiing improved exponentially from 2 straight years at bump camp. Not only during the week...but the skills and training and that I took with me into the ski season were incredible. I finally know how to diagnose what I was doing wrong and how to attack the bump field. My only regret is not doing this years ago...and man what a fun way to spend a week in the summer while everyone else is at the beach.

Hmm..... Chucks first post indentifies himself, listed his web site to show his creds, tells us that current and past champs are using this ski (BTW, Janne and Dale will become legends in the sport, if not already), tell us how hard they are to get in the US and give us a direct line to them. I think he had alot to offer in that first post.

I don't think their skis will work for a fence like that (cause they're twin tips

Hey Guys,
I just want to thank you for inviting me to return to this forum. Forum discussions are new for me so I am just checking it out. I am happy to offer my input on mogul skiing technique and equipment when I am available online. I do not spend a lot of time in front of the computer, but when I do I am happy to offer my input.

I work in a ski shop and on the mountain in Winter Park, CO (we have a mogul or two ... or a mountain with nothing else), and I've seen more broken ID's than I've ever seen from any other brand.

Now it certainly could be user error, I'm not blaming the skis completely, just curious
The ID Ones have been well improved over the last few years. They have been working with Janne Lattela to improve the construction and shape of the skis. I skied on them this summer and I was very impressed. They are now hand made in Japan. The skis I skied on this summer were pretty beefy. I was able to size down from a 182 to a 177 due to the stiffness of the ski underfoot and at the tail.

 I have skied Hart F17's for a few years now and have found them to be the best mogul skis available. They're kind of expensive but can really rip in the bumps and are used by lots of mogul competitors. Hope this help!

P.S: For some help in skiing the bumps, check out this Mogul Skiing Site.

It's been some time now and everyone im sure has skied most every ski talked about in all the "mogul ski" threads. Any good compilations of results? Hart F-17, K2 Mamba, Vokl (whichever is the current name of bump ski they have), Etc. As a 46 yr old bump skier in the East I'm looking for a mogul specif ski. 5'7" 160lbs. Trying for some demo time on whatever I can find in the 160 to 170cm range. Comments, suggestions, etc. All welcome.
