Here's the link to the video. How do I embed? Moguls at Solitude - YouTube
Not bad at all... I would focus on trying to avoid counter-rotating - that is to twist your arms/shoulders in one direction to get your legs/board to turn the opposite direction (in the video you can see that sometimes as your turn toeside your left arm swings behind you in the opposite rotation). This is bad because you cannot easily change edges and turn the other way until you "untwist" leading you to "miss a turn" you wanted to make sometimes.

You want to try to keep your arms/shoulders rotating with... or even slightly ahead of your legs/hips in the same direction. Try to plan a zig-zagging route a couple of moguls ahead of where you are.

Does that make sense?
