Whistler mogul skiing instruction...??

This is sad misrepresentation of what mogul skiing is. You have some of the best instruction possible via the Smart mogul camps yet W/B decides to promote CSIA mogul teaching methods. To ski like this instructor one needs to be a CSIA schooled instructor. Hopefully the instructional segments get better...not holding my breath.
It's not that you can't ski moguls... it's that you can't ski and moguls prove it...

Hilarious, all that production to show where the mogul faces/"landings" are, then the instructor can't/doesn't even hit/"land" on them.
Skiing with good posture since 2008 - thanks MS.net

Just ran across parts 2 and 3 which are not much better than part 1... although Whistler's terrain is certainly the focus of these vids. These are not what I would call instructional videos.

Wouldn't it have been fun to see a real mogul skier ski the same bumps?

Can't say I am a mogul skier but I think I can recognize one and he was just a PSIA clone.

72 and still trying - its so much fun when you do it right - which isn't too often but still well worth it.

Lets hope for a great year.
