Default any tips with moguls?

I am starting to work on moguls...I can do a few and then I seem to miss one and get a bit too much speed and washout...Any hints on shortening the learning curve...thanks....

Thanks, I am going to stay at it. I am fairly new and think this will help me in the trees with turning. I have just ridden enough now, to be a bit not bored but ready to try new terrain and lessen the time on the lift vs. riding...thanks for the insight....

That is THE key to not only riding moguls, but snowboarding in general. Whether you do it intentionally or not, picking a line is how it all gets done. It's all about turning where the terrain tells you it wants you to turn...where you and the conditions become one, and riding becomes a Zen state...there is no mountain, there is no snow, there is no ice, there is no rider, there is only one, fluid, connected state of Being.
