Hard ice moguls suck. Fuck those.

|t21||glad that this thread is still on only 4 months to go before winter but who's counting huh? i've finally figured it out by (more riding) how to handle moguls,though i'm not yet proficient with it, i had more fun and not as scared to go thru them last season. what worked for me was the piston action of my legs and definitely looking 2 to 3 bumps ahead helped. keeping my upper body relax and taking my time is a plus. the only issue i still have is on the more steeper(double black)type moguls,but that is my goal this next season. i appreciated everyone's advice and will still take some more, and hopefully we can all helped one another on this.|

I have always hated moguls and scoffed at anyone who wants to take a board in there. That being said, being able to do moguls is great practice for tree runs without the consequences of hitting a tree.
I have found this past year that getting better at basic riding techniques helped me to charge in the moguls:
1. keep knees a little extra low, ankles flexed, torso UPRIGHT but hips low
2. with proper form you control the board with the bottom half of your legs, using your quads like pistons you want to keep your upper body as motionless as possible even as you rise and fall over the moguls.

i love doing moguls...what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger...though i generally wont bother attempting those super steep double black moguls...build up way too much speed beyond my comfort

|vwbrian||I just like the challenge of riding a mogul feild. I seek them out. The one thing is that there are very few mogul fields on Mt Hood Meadows. Most are not that good on the spacing. but that just makes it a better challeng. I think overall it will make you a more rounded rider. Plus if you get caught at the top of one with only one way down you don't want to be the guy side slipping all the way down.|
