yea, moguls are bumps. but there has to be a lot of bumps grouped together to make it moguls. it cant be a bump every once and a while.

groomed runs- are runs that arent bumpy and "groomed" or "trimed" maintaned to make it smooth... ok its hard for me to explain with words so heres a picture.

Yea thats it. Because all the runs are groomed (except the mogul ones). By nightime it gets all sloopy.
