I'm not a big fan but I will say they can make for some fun jumps as long as you don't land on top of another one.

it depends on how the moguls are formed for me. i find i can whiz through them so long as i'm carving throug around their mid-sections and completely avoiding the actual valleys between them. it's also easy if the moguls are particularly soft.

i hate the fact that moguls take the place of what used to be a beautiful hillside covered in 12 inches of powder. and once moguls are there, they arent leaving the rest of the season.

oh i don't know, those piston bullys can be pretty good slope manicurists!

but in france especially, if a good sized mogul field forms, they leave it there. it is supposed to attract the mogul lovers and theoretically lessen the risk of other fields forming

but that does little to prevent the effects of newbie skiers doing the perpetual snow plough! (consider that the next time someone tries to slag off a slip slider!)

you can use them to bank turns off of as well, and the ones with a bit of flat behind them make super wicked jumps! holy schmeg i have broken the sound barrier a good few times from hopping moguls!

they're like whoop-dee-doos!
Yeah! I <3 racing between them to build up for one huge jump near the bottom.

I still have problems with them because I ride a big wide deck so I have tendency to get too deep into them and can't get the board around quick enough to not get caught. They do make sick jumps for sure though! First day of the season for me I found this back run that was open at Mt. Snow that was all moguled up by the skiers and the end of the day... either way I start charging it hard and decide to lift off one of them only to proceed to land flat on top of another one I didn't see when I took off tail force springs the board forward, nose catches a powder stash and I do a freaking cartwheel! it was actually one of the most fun falls I've ever had because it was just crazy how it happened!

I do like the runs though because it's challenging for me

problem i have with skiers(mostly the less talented ones) is that they jump on a slope alittle to hard for them and then carve from one side to the other...almost impossible to pass them cause as soon as you make a move bam! the turn into your path lol..like they are trying to slow you down...there so unpredictable...i hate bein behind skiers like that
