What's with all the "bump" and "mogul" threads? - Page 4

Some of the best bump skiers I know are amazing SL racers. They use the same basic turn, timing the bump absorption so that absorbing the bumps becomes the transition.

Plus SL racers are wickedly fast edge to edge so taking the zipper (flush) isn't a big deal.

I would be elated if that rich uncle I never knew about left me a house in T'ride. All around I'd say it's a better mountain to ski than WP/MJ. Mary Jane has at least two things going for it though....more, better and more varied bumps and much easier to do on the cheap.

Please. It is "wicked fast" or if they are really good, "wicked pissa fast"

SQUAW VALLEY
If you are going spring skiing at Squaw, learn how to follow the sun.
Start on slopes that face the sun, they will thaw first.
Work your way around the mountain.

Try skiing West Face (Jonny Mosely's Run) while you are there.
The 2nd, 3rd, or 4th West face will have smaller bumps.

My soccer days are over. It's the little guy's schedule that rules April & May. April has possibilities unless Silverton unguided or some BC trips win out. I'll keep it in mind and stay in touch after I recover from the bump runs my kid dragged me down.

Bumpfreq, where are you on your tour and how long is it? If you get a wild hair and head SW, let me know.

ABasin tomorrow to be one of the hangers on to the Trekchick posse. One more week

That would be way cool..... so many bumps, so little time

3) Ya, bumps suck
1) Ones that don't get enough freshies. At PowMow 5 days after a dump off the Cat - not a bump to be found.

2) At Heavenly today and while "The Face" was all b umped up, the adjacent East Bowl woods was all flat.

3) One out of three (probably) isn't so bad :

Hmm...I'd say most of the time the trees at Bachelor are bumpless (such a shame).

If you live and ski somewhere it snows enough that there are never really any bumps, fine--Mt Baker, Utah, whatever--you ski at one of those places and don't bother with bumps, more power to you (and please make room for me on your floor sometime).

But if you ski at a mountain that bumps up a lot, you're not facing up to the challenge that your mountain presents if you avoid them.

I think they make you a better skier and I think they're fun. But I know a lot of good skiers who don't agree with me. Not like I'd avoid a powder day to ski moguls, but I enjoy them and the challenge they present.
