A tip from Epic..

Postby PomfretPlunge » Wed Apr 17, 2013 1:34 am

I couldn't believe this one

"Boot fit is probably one of the most determining factors in learing to ski bumps well as it is almost impossible to learn to ski bumps if your boots are too big or too small. If they are too big, your feet will be moving around too much making it very difficult to turn quick enough for the next bump. You will constantly find yourself in the backseat with boots too big. You will be muscling yourself around and exhausting yourself in a short period of time. If your boots are too small, then your toes will be constantly smashed into the end of the toe box with every bump hit, causing pain. Your brain will be divided. One part will be trying to stop you from smashing your feet and will be in constant dissagreement with the part of your brain trying to ski the bumps. Not fun."

It's not that you can't ski moguls... It's your boots don't fit :lol:

Tips on bump skiing from Epic are sort of like getting sex advice from nuns. Actually, legs hip-width apart could be either Epic bump advice, or...? :lol:
