The way this season is going, I'd settle for pretty much any type of snowpack.

Yes, bumps, rocks and grass riding seems to be the way to go this year.

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.

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

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.

T21, if you're still looking at this post let me know, I can post some additional info on handling moguls.

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.
