Snowboarders who complain about moguls just don't know how to ride through them. It ain't easy, for sure, but it can be rewarding when you make it through a mogul patch with speed and confidence.
They were super soft today, great to learn where to turn on them today.

delawareshreds haha this is great, I actually had a guy at work today ask me if snowboarders thought skiiers looked weird when they were riding a half pipe, I replied with" no they always look fucking weird, its like comparing roller blading to skateboarding, what do you do when you see an adult roller blading? You laugh,"

Tatanka Head Ride the edges and avoid the moguls if they aren't something you can handle. I don't mind moguls, but I'm not chasing after them either. I find myself on the edges primarily because I'm looking for off piste or near piste options.

I do appreciate their desire to smooth over the moguls, but I really can't stand beginner boarders who plow down entire runs. Nothing makes me want to stop and give pointers more than when I see this. I'll excuse it if the person is trying to teach another person or if they are crying, but if that is just how they ride then they need to get back to the blues.

But seriously, what's that all about? I strive to get better, have straighter runs and clean turns. And I'm not going down a black for a while, until I fully trust myself to do it (mostly) right. Runs will get tracked up just by people going on them...

Just wanted to say that I do actually plan on practicing on moguls. I just got this idea of trying to get air for the first time on them. Won't throw you very high, so not too scary. Right?
California is in a (snow) drought. He would take moguls all day.

If you've got a board strapped to your feet, you're already doing it.
