what is your fav... other than bumps

Postby mrfitness » Tue Dec 27, 2011 5:38 pm

Just think it would be interesting to see what bump skiers love to do on skies when not on a field of moguls. I think back east and out west have different things to offer.

Steeps and powder, even if I have to hike for it.

Railing turns at mach looney on some big mountain planks where it's steep and deep puts a smile on my face for sure!

Conversly, I have never enjoyed skiing low angle washboard bumps like what you typically find for the last few hundred yards on Gandy and Frenchman. There are better options at WP.

I really enjoy maching down steeper corduroy groomers, picking my way down steep chutes with little drops and of course steep and deep powder runs. Oh and drinking in the Club Car after. :)

3-5,000 vertical foot runs in B.C. with it blowing over your head.

When I'm not mogul skiing, I like to teach my daughter how to ski.

The only thing that is almost as good as skiing moguls for me is big open powder fild with untracked bottomless pow with the option of a few big drops and that is definitly worth hiking for

Snowcat skiing. This one was in Durango (probably the best powder day of my life)
I've also skied Berthoud pas several times when they had a snowcat operation there.
