DT welcome to Epicski. The conditions in bumps that you describe are one of my all time favorite bump conditions. Bullet proof unadultered blue ice in wildly varying bumps ranks right at the top. I ski on Rossi telemark T3 powder skis.
The operative word. On ice, edge with you're ankles instead of you're knees and hips. Edging with the ankles is subtle and does not require moving you're weight and balance all over the place. When you edge with you're ankles you're body will go where it needs to automatically. This is much easier said than learned.
In order to edge with my ankles and steer round short turns properly, I have my feet apart in bumps. If you're feet are together you cannot steer the ski tips and are forced to push the tails out using the knees and hips. That is a recipe for disaster on ice.
Unlike Bob, I ski pretty deep in the troughs and steer a very high line. High meaning that I turn early and well above the next slot below me. Just like racing gates, you want to steer a high line so that much of you're turning is completed before the gate. In bumps you want most of you're turning completed before the face of the next bump. This slices you across the face of the bump below you and keeps you more in the troughs. This reduces the need for flexion and extension and controls speed much better. The turns are much rounder and completed farther across the fall line.
When you see that large expanse of ice in the next bump sequence turn high above the slot that will dump you onto the ice. This will bring you in well across the fall line and high on the lower patch of ice as you finish you're turn. Act like there is a gate right in the middle of that patch of ice between where you entered and the face of the bump below. Increase the size of you're turn to match the expanse of ice so you're turn is round and brings you across just above the face of the lower bump. This sets you up for another high line leading into the next sequence of bumps that may be tight.
Learn to have independed leg absorbtion. Learn to let you're legs get long or short independent of one another. This keeps the skis apart, you're hips and weight over you're skis and you're upper body quiet and balanced. More of a peddling action.
Lastly, have the patience to allow the skis to seek the fall line and round the top third of you're turns. The top third of you're turns should take three times as long as the bottom two thirds of you're turns. Short and round is the operative word for mogul turns.
I mostly ski a wide zipperline in the troughs but throw in many larger turns around the next bump if I don't like the next squence in the series of bumps. [img]smile.gif[/img]
