NB, I think we are miscommunicating.
1. Your assertations of bump skiing Mogul programs do not teach "proper" ski technique
. I have started and been the head coach of three. I know what I taught all of my athletes. Learn to use the ski as a tool. Turns start with the foot, then the ankle then the knees. All turns no matter where you are on the mountain, or where you CHOSE to ski the bumps.
2. Your body position.
Your shoulders are hunched because you are not on top of your skis. A skier does not hunch their shoulders to increase weight onto the fronts, they drive their entire body mass forward. Skiers who are not on top of their skis"break at the waist" no matter where they are on the mountain. Your mass, for the most part, is on the arch to the back of foot.
3. You consistently reach with your feet.
Watch your videos closely, a majority of your turns you reach with your feet. Its on the film, no need to explain.
4. Your line choice.
The technical line, as you call it. I fully comprehend where you are turning, it is fun to ski that line, however, it is a tactical decision, not a technique.
I can understand your frustration with WC judging, however, if you think that those high level bump skiers can only make that one turn, you are sadly mistaken.
They have chosen a sport and excel in it. In order to compete and win an athlete ,unfortunately, sometimes has to conform to succeed. All the athletes I have had the oppurtunity to coach are well rounded skiers. They could go to any part of a mountain and tear it up. I know this first hand from skiing all over North America with them. Seeing them ski steeps, trees, crud,powder you name it-sometimes on skiiny bump skis in between runs or after training. Trust me they are not sliding and pivoting by any stretch of the imagination.
In my opinion you have backed up opinions with flawed logic.
Someone who finally actually knows WTF they are talking about and is seeing what i am talking about, and have been objecting to for the past 7 pages of this thread. I no longer have to beat my head against the wall.
There really is a difference between skiing the bumps, and skiing the bumps.
