    FKNA. If I took that shot it would be hanging on my living room wall in poster size.

    Edit: On second thought I would wallpaper my house with it.

    Was reading this:

    https://www.pugski.com/threads/recre...-4#post-313019

    That leads me to ask, what is "the stance that is ideal for the next turn"? The ski position is: perpendicular to the fall line, parallel, or something else?

    In other words, Movement Analysis is "do as I say, not as I do"?

    Can't agree. There is some really good info in this thread and in the pug thread.

    https://www.pugski.com/threads/recre...-7#post-313430

    The ID ONE Step up video and post there I think is really helpful.
    Basically, any pro mogul skier, can ski the zipper line or round line, very very slowly and in control like that.

    It is lame to ski moguls?

    Plake recent posted a mogul vid of himself on IG. Loose style, summer bumps, just cruising in his fancy pants.

    There's gotta be a body weight to height ratio chart that correlates FIS wins with those metrics.

    Kingsbury is 5' 9" and 149.5 lbs.

    Just like a car, unsprung mass needs to be reduced, to make an efficient suspension and nice ride.

    Heavy legs = bad form and main body mass gets thrown all about.

    Whatever legs you have, take 10 lbs off the unsprung mass, and another 20 lbs off the sprung mass, and it is going to help in the moguls a lot.

    Just a late night mogul thesis.

    I'm with you, I think there's a lot of great bump skiing advice over at PugSki, although it can tip into over-analysis and meaningless minutia from time to time. But anything jack97, MisterMoose, or tBall says is gold. Far better than most of the mogul advice you'll find here (our own ill-advised strategy and bendtheski, among others, knows their stuff) or on NewSchoolers for instance (all the former cares about is the length of your skis and all the later cares about is the length of your Ts).

    But, regarding the original question, my opinion is the best approach is exactly what that IDOne video shows: slide/smear/skid/steer down the slope in an upright, feet-together stance until you come to the back side of the bump, quick edge set, pole plant, flex knees/hips to release edges, and drive your tips into the trough as quickly as possible. So the slide/skid part of the turn is of variable length, as opposed to the edge set, pole plant, edge release part which is as fast as you can cleanly complete it.

    But, you're kinda wasting your time discussing that here. I've generally found that folks who really like to carve and those that are too hardcore to ski inside the ropes are very uncomfortable with (or too proud to use) a skidded/smeared turn.

    And none of this addresses the all-important absorption and extension aspect...

    Most pro bumpers are between 5'7" and 6'2"; definitely shorter than the avg downhiller, so you might be on to something there.

    Maybe that's why Full Tilt also has an edge in sales in Freestyle/Moguls.

    Perhaps there is even an untapped market for ultra-light ski+boot+binding combos for comp mogul skiers.

    In a world of milliseconds and high-impact/high-pace courses, drop 1 lb of unsprung mass = GOLD podium.
