Great Bump Movie, Great Music

Postby Henri » Wed May 21, 2014 3:30 pm

Found an excerpt from Fistful of Moguls by Greg Stump, 1999, with summer training from 1997 on Blackcomb glacier for Jonny Moseley and other World Cup and Olympic hopefuls, and some great bump runs by Glen Plake. True mogul porn.

I have it on VHS. I'm not sure how many times I've watched it, but it was part of my getting ready to ski routine while having breakfast.

Found another clip - far superior picture quality to what I've seen previously on rutube


Just so you can rant along (Glen Plake lays out his take on those who believe they can buy a turn - specifically a mogul turn), I lifted the transcript from another board. (this is obviousley not Glen's take on the new school as the video was released in 1998)

It’s time you know... I mean uh... uh... It’s time to say goodbye to all the gimmicks.

You know a lot of people are having a hard time skiing powder. It’s, just you know, it’s so difficult. But, hell, there’s an answer for that... just go get yourself some... some fat skis!

y’know I’m having a hard time skiing powder and uh, I just uh, I don’t know uh... y’know it’s really difficult.

No kidding it’s difficult. It’s skiing, it’s a difficult sport. But for $650 bucks go get yourself some tongue depressors to slide around on and guess what man? You’re skiing powder. In fact you’re chasing me around for powder!

The old carved turn. Nobody can carve a turn. You’re not supposed to be able to carve a turn. That’s like the sacred cow man. But for $650 bucks go get yourself some hourglass skis and you’ll out carve half the guys teaching skiing at Vale!

Everybody that’s ever been to Squaw Valley has counted to three and hurled their bodies off the Pallisades. Big deal!

What is a big deal is mogul skiing. You don’t buy it. You don’t fake it. It’s real. It’s alive,
and if you want to find the best skiers on the mountain, you might want to take a good hard look at who’s skiing the bumps.

But moguls now there’s something you do not buy. You earn. There’s something you do not talk about in the bar about how bad ass your mogul run was, because everybody was there. Everybody saw it. It was right there under the chair. There’s nothing to hide. There’s nothing to buy that can help you.

You know what comes from skiing? Moguls. Moguls are a product of our sport. It's not something you've got to go spend a million dollars on building a little... little playing field. It just happens naturally.

Moguls are a fact of life now. Since all the extreme skiers are out extreme skiing everything's a bump run now. Corbert's Coulour: great mogul run. You know you see people jumping cliffs and cornices. I wonder if those people are skiing or do they just happen to have a pair of skis on?

Why everyone says, "Well I don't ski moguls very much". Yeah, show me a mountain in America that isn't covered with moguls and I'll believe you.

We're coming at you Suckers!
Skiing with good posture since 2008 - thanks MS.net

That's what I love about Plake. He doesn't mince words and he's absolutely right. You can't buy it and you can't hide it.

If you are a fan of Stump, he is the new morning DJ on Warren Miller's PEAK3 Radio - Radio Free Stumpy 9-10 AM Mountain Time Tuesday thru Thursday. Once winter hits going up to Mon thru Friday 8 - 10 AM Mountain.

Its a fun show, this upcoming Tuesday he has an interview with Lynsey Dyer.

There are podcasts of past Stump shows as well as PEAK3's other shows - One Word With Kaylin Richardson - Kaylin is a former US Ski Team athlete and Olympian- lots of good shows - the one with Chris Davenport is really good. And there are a bunch of Athlete and Industry Spotlights with Warren Miller athletes and others.... the interviewer seems to talk about bumps a lot, haha.....http://www.peak3radio.com/podcasts/
