Can anyone name some good bump runs at deervalley to learn on? THANKS
I am just starting to head down black bump runs this year, so I still put myself squarely in the learning category of mogul skiing. Once I got over being visually intimidated by it, I thought the runs in Empire Bowl, Conviction, Solace, Domingo and further down, Buckeye, were very good places to work on/learn bump skiing.
The only green mogul run I know of: Little Bell. It is actually a great place to learn bumps. It is only about 200 to 300 yards long, but you can lap it from the Carpenter lift. Have fun.
I don't know if it differs from year to year, but when we were there the whole area under the Empire chair was great learning bumps (wide slope, good shapes, relatively small). Other than that, just look around. I thought that all the bumps at Deer Valley were surprisingly nice -- i.e., very few cut up irregular ones.
That was where my son started skiing bumps.
Deer Valley hosts / instructors can also help you out with this. Most bump lines there tend to be skied by pretty decent bumpers, so that helps.
The Expert tour (9:30 - 12 noon) covers quite a bit of acreage, and probably could point out the bumps even if you dont ski them while on the tour.
