Looking for boarding moguls video

Here is what I've found. My goal is building skills to enjoy myself boarding the bumps.

Snowboarding Moguls, Amanda at Copper Co. - YouTube

Snowboarding moguls?! Yes sir! (2013) - YouTube

Suggestions?

It takes time, your clean slope riding has to be GOOD, and the main thing is thinking a few steps ahead in the moguls. I suppose you could practise on flat slopes by making several sharp quick turns, pivoting the board under a calmer upper body.

Once in the moguls, pick your line and ride it out... Go slowly at first and as you get used to picking the right line (read: the one that's easiest on your knees) then you can start ramping up the speed.

Yeah, I admit that is above my skills. What they do for a whole run I can only do for a small section...moguls are my nemesis.

I like to ride moguls as well. I'm not as smooth or fast as you though. This will give me a push to try some more mogul riding this weekend.

Ha, I'm not in the videos, just looking for inspiration. As a new snowboarder I don't want to accept a "Don't go near the bumps" mind set.

This is my main problem, keeping my focus a few bumps ahead. I get in a good groove in a mogul field and one always catches me off guard or off balance forcing me to start over...or get back up.

Nothing wrong with that, maybe just slow it down a tad. I know you want to tackle the field, but maybe just ride the field a couple times first!

Also, are you getting tired in the field? It takes a lot of energy to tame the bumps, and if you're getting winded (I do) that can throw you off...

Normally i don't notice how much of a toll it took on me until I finish the run. I think I'm trying to ride too fast and losing my concentration.
