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 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.
Hey, just read your sig. gotta agree with that first line.

the comment about using your quads like pistons is a good one. I just really got a handle on this last season. I think it was watching the snow-cross competitions that really brought it home. Makes a huge difference to your control!

Apparently. I get that this is an example of dynamic riding and being loose, but I was expecting to actually see it applied to moguls.

incredible agility and technique...nice

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.
