I am possibly in the minority, but I absolutely love bumps and moguls .. Almost as much as powder. On a half decent powder day, I love when the runs turn to mush and there is bumps everywhere. Ride over them, jump them, ride around them .. It is very tiring, but I love being so animated.
A good solid mogul run is just as much fun, especially when they are more evenly sized and spaced. You get into a real rhythm riding through them.

Thanks for trying would be good to see.
I like the technical challenge of moguls and doesn't bother me when I have to ride them. Plus it reminds me of my powerboat racing days when I was younger (reading ahead and picking your way around and over waves at speed is a fairly similar mental process).
But if I could choose if a given run had fresh pow or week old moguls... well I'm sure I don't have to say which I'd rather
Where they definitely cause me problems is when they get really big (and rutted), icy and there's other factors (steep or narrow /both/trying to film with GoPro on grenade grip at the same time hehe - took a few tumbles on that run ).
So if you did get anything worthwhile in the gnarly conditions you describe maybe it would be useful to see after all?

|Triple8Sol||It's been said before, but it's just experience. I'm not a fan of moguls either, but I love steeps and technical terrain. That means lots of skiiers....and moguls. It still sucks, and it's a leg-burning pita, but a necessary evil to access or exit the terrain I seek. Same thing applies to long bumpy traverses.|

|MarshallV82||Only time I do moguls is when I take a wrong turn or have my Ski's attached to my feet. I can ride them with my board, but I feel like life is just to short to bother with it.|

I read about 2 to 3 bumps ahead and it is fun. I'm not an expert but i do like to hit them since last season. i would just pump my legs like a piston and stay low,i had a youtube of me trying to learn bumps on the beginning of second season and got better the more i practice. i still do not like the volkwagen size moguls but it is surely very challenging.
cannot wait for Snowolf's mogul video

|Donutz||It's not that I love moguls, it's just that I can't stand it if there's a type of terrain I can't ride. So whenever I see a mogul field I head for it. So far the moguls are winning.|

I have learned you want to do more a dynamic of a turn with just pushing and pulling ur tail in and out compared to how you would normally take a turn when riding bumps....
