Default I hate bumps

We dont get much powder in the East, but when we do, every person that ever owned skis comes out to do dynamic turns down blacks , tightly , creating the ever annoying mogul fields.

Before that however, you have a mix of crud, powder, packed powder, tracked powder and piles of snow that you believe to be just large crud but, are now officially solid and mogul like.

I hit one going about 30 mph yesterday, bounced backwards as I was just transitioning to heel edge at this point, almost landed it but hit another right after which forcefully brought me to my head.

Is this just something you learn to avoid over time or, would the technique be to hold a almost carve through this to cut through easier? I find it very hard to carve through bumps, especially as they get bigger and thicker.
