Wonderful skiing Pierre ,please post more clips. Love your style in moguls, I hope I can see you do some in person this season.

Now I see why you like icy bumps. Your blend looks to involve edging, line choice and turn shape to make very fluid turns in bumps.

You make it look too easy. Now I think I should be able to ski them.

Second Video

Here is the upper part of that run. The moguls are bigger, tighter and the multiple fall lines criscross. Throw in a few cat tracks and more shaddows for good measure. I am trying to figure out how to put up slowmotion.

My camera man is a good skier but he did not want to ski this, especially with my camera.

I really like the way you ski moguls.

Thanks again.

Great videos, Pierre. Looks to me like your low impact approach is using the available ruts to optimum advantage???? What do you do in big, undercut bumps with deeper ruts like we see so much in the midwest?

Your skiing reminds me of a good golfer from the perspective minimum effort delivering superior results. Very fluid , total control, no gltches.

I think the distance you skied before stopping on a bump run at 10,000 ft. elevation confirms you're in better shape than you give yourself credit for.

I run almost everyday here in Pa. and am sucking wind in Colorado on a tough run.

From an e-mail conversation with *a former Epicski member*:

Hey Paul, his video reminds me alot of your bump skiing, with the great speed control.

Hey thanks, that’s kind of you. Juan Pierre really has it going on, that’s great bump skiing. Notice how his skis are always connected. That’s what I look for in great bump skiing, what I’m always focusing on. Post that I said so.
I mean, look how easy he’s making it look. Those aren’t tourist bumps, either

Years ago Pierre posted an explanation of his "theroy" (maybe "tactic" is a more fitting word) of bump skiing, I still remember it and upon reading it I decided that I would have tried it, come the conditions to.
Alas, here there are very few bumps run left, pistes are groomed to the excess, bar very few. Anyhow, the videos are an effective demo of that post. Why not put the two toghether (if anyone can find the post I'm referring to) and put the result into the "Sticky" section?

Very nice. Much different than the way I choose to ski them and that is what is great about skiing and particularly moguls, there is more than one style to ski them. Your style is very Paul Jones-esque, and that is a big complement! I hope when I get to be your age, I am skiing them as well and smooth as you ski them.

You look very fluid and as others have pointed out, make this look easy. Actually I thought, hmm it doesn't look that hard, but I think making it look that way is a skill.

Nice skiing Pierre. Who says you have to give up bumps when you get older.
post #51 of 52
Pierre, I ski like that in my dreams, but then I wake up and my hands drop down, and my uphill hand sends me flailing!

First thing I said to myself...looks like me. But Pierre is much younger.

Falling leaf.

Some fine skiing, Pierre.
