Yea. I don't understand why they'd put moguls on Thor when they have so many of them on Gorge and Wally's which are both fairly steep. I hardly saw anyone go down Thor the couple of times I've been there recently.
Moguls are a consequence of being ridden/skied a lot. They're not something the resort "makes" or puts on a particular slope, although they often elect *not* to groom over them.
I don't believe that is the case ALL of the time. I'm sure that's mainly the case out west, but not here.
Example, Holly. Moguls were completely gone when I rode there last with you Dave. Couple days later, big ones where back there. I find it hard to believe moguls that big were naturally tracked in a span of a couple of days. And that's just two days I wasn't there. It could have appeared that same morning I went for all I know.
The one on Thor does look more like natural moguls though. It looks like they didn't groom that side and just left the tracks.
This might be a stupid question, but would it be worth paying for a lesson or should I just keep riding and experimenting? If they were cheaper I'd buy one tomorrow, but 69 bucks an hour is pretty steep to me.
I'm going to take a lesson or two next season. Have him ride with me and point out bad habits to improve on.
Sorry to belabor the point and double post in the thread (and thanks for your input sab), but does anyone else think an intermediate lesson is actually worth 70 bucks for one hour? I just want some tips on handling steeps and speed at this point. I'm confident I can figure it out by riding, but everyone always talks up lessons like they're the cat's pajamas. However the few people I know who have taken lessons (albeit beginner lessons) didn't think they were worthwhile.
edit: cool thanks Leo, didn't have to double post after all.
