    Saudan Coulior, Pallavacini, a bunch of stuff at Telluride, just off the top of my head are runs that are steep but get bumped out pretty fast. No question, there are a bunch of steep bump runs at several resorts.

    I thought he skied at mammoth? nope, no moguls on the steeper trader routes there.... ha!
    Mammoth ainít that steep. Try Diamond Bowl off Spankyís in Blackcomb. That is steep. Try one of the North Couliors on Mt Johnson out of Bishop. Thatís steep.

    Yíall are like children and assume everyone is in the same situation as yíall. Well, sorry I have options for skiing in the BC or skiing at different resorts with both the IKON & Epic. Sorry, I can pretty much go anywhere with my 30 ft 5th where trailer + diesel truck combo. Sorry I think yíall have a dumb love for bumps/following where many skiers have gone.

    Yíall can ski where many have been all you want. I ainít hating. But in my personal opinion, bumps are lame.

    Diamond and Saphire are steep as is most of the stuff off Spanky's. Saudan Coulior (previously mentioned) and Big Bang are excellent at WB, too. Great skiing, for sure. I can't speak to anything on Mt. Johnson as I've never been there but I can appreciate that stuff. But slamming others for liking moguls is lame, especially when many of these runs do get bumped with the skier traffic. Your personal opinion is just...."like your opinion, man". Kind of meaningless for those who don't agree.

    No you won't. You'll be too old and feeble to ski bumps. You'll be sticking to the blue squares that the report shows were groomed in the A.M.

    Exactly. Itís just my opinion. But the TGR lynch mob for differing opinions is hilarious to fuck with. So much herd mentality in here which explains why people like to ski where many have been (i.e. Moguls).

    lol, kiddo. this is fun! it looks like you finally started skiing in the backcountry. that's awesome. have a great time! california is a great place for it. plenty of super steeps, as you've seen in your guidebook, plenty of super fun techie stuff stuff (like the chutes off mt johnson), and plenty of moderate terrain. It's a great place for getting "out there." hopefully, we don't get suncupped to hell too early in the 5th season.

    back to moguls:
    last time i was in the south lake area, hurd peak had moguls that were visible from the trailhead....

    and plenty of the steeper runs at mammoth get mogulled: hangman's (I bet it ain't too steep this season anymore), varmits, phillipes, etc.

    ime, the best way to enjoy bumps was on acid. especially when they were ice hard. the delusions of grandeur were especially hilarious.

    Excluding the first and last runs of the day, all I ski are bump runs.

    I am as fucking lame as can be.

    So yeah, mogul skiing is the lamest thing you can do on skis.

    But Gnar Pow skiing is pretty lame too. All yall old folks here on TheGeezerRoom.com wouldn't know it, but the only unlame skiing is jibbin' or stompin' some rad Twirly-Wirly-360-Ass-Grabbers in the park.

    Now that the children are in a frenzy over their beloved bumps, itís mission accomplished. Heading out for a North Tahoe tour now. Spain was great, but it feels good to be back in the Sierra!

    My 6 yo would rather ski moguls than groomers. He's honestly not an amazing 6yo skier, no race team, still frequently in and out of the wedge.. but loves tearing through 3D terrain in his wedge whenever he gets the chance.

    We are working on parallel skiing on good snow and groomers, but I've gotta be honest.. the kid loves bumps in his wedge both in or out of the woods, and I love following him. When we're together having fun in "challenging" terrain l couldn't care less about teaching technique.

    So I think mougul skiing sucks.
    But sometimes it's the only way to avoid the gaper.
    If you can't ski moguls YOU ARE A GAPER! At the very least if you can't ski new snow, soft moguls then basically, you don't know how to ski!
    Any gaper can cruise down a groomed flat slope(even if its' steep). What is there to that???
    And it's all bullshit about the knees (for good snow at least) In good conditions there should be very little stress on your knees, that is, if you know how to ski.
    Now, icy, steep, deep moguls, that's a different story, and you get pardon for sloppiness there.
    "Oh look at me, I can ski down this slope that they run this big machine on every night to make it nice and easy to ski with my buddies from Texas." OH PLEASE!
