    I'm going to go half in there. I preferred the natural made bumps and find your own air bump over the canned runs. I don't prefer the old equipment. We were all using poles that were WAY too big for effective bump skiing in the 70s. That's half the reason it looked so freakin WILD, arms flailing all over the place. Shorter poles was a definite improvement. Shorter skis can do what longer skis did back then, but probably a little longer than the mid 170s most use in the seeded bumps.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Used to love pounding the bumps. Grew up on the Mary Jane bump runs.

    Craziest mogul runs I ever saw in person was 1990, Sugarloaf Maine. Pro Mogul tour event.

    Friday AM 24” of powder - skipped school and skied almost empty mountain endless knee deep.

    Sunday we rallied back for the Mogul comp and some good skiing with the base. Thing was it had rained Saturday and all that snow had piled up into giant moguls and then frozen hard as a rock Saturday night.

    Can’t believe they even still had the event. Giant, Rock hard moguls. And the pros were still going for it, maybe dialed back a bit, but Helis an back scratchers and spread eagles into those moguls. We were right beneath one of the likely jumps and I’ll never forget the sound of Skis whacking ice as guys hucked. Several guys got carted off before we decided it was too much to watch and bailed.

    I used to love skiing chief bumps. Sucked me out of chief trails probably way too soon and often. Then on to chief face. Et cetera.

    I have no choice.
    One of the best bump skiers I ever new was from the UP. Used to hang around the Mystery Spot and Vail.
