Quick tip on skiing bumps for anyone who gains unwanted speed.Now if only I could implement these tips consistently and with as much precision...I feel like my reaction time can't possibly keep up with how quickly moguls appear on steeper terrain!
Quick tip on skiing bumps for anyone who gains unwanted speed.
Ski one bump and stop. Ski next bump and stop. Ski next bump and stop. Continue all the way down this way. There are many ways to get over or around bumps. Johnny's way gets you around the bump, not over it. Use any way you like, then stop at the bottom of each bump.
This stopping exercise will keep the bumps from coming at you with too much speed. And it will firm up your balance over your skis.
If you can't stop after each bump, you're probably aft. Bend ze knees to get yourself lower, and pull feet farther back up under you. Keep self low and keep feet back up under you the whole run. You'll feel extra tongue-shin pressure. That's a sign you're doing it right. If you can stop after each bump, you're no longer aft, and can slowly work on slowing instead of stopping after each bump.
The slower you can go, the more secure you'll be when you go faster.
You are right that Johnny Moseley is promoting skiing from foot to foot in the bumps. He is also promoting skiing around the bumps in the troughs.I hate trying to think this over in the summer when I can't go play with it on snow.. but I feel like I am usually more 2 footed throughout the turn when skiing bumps, or at least I try to be. And I do end up fighting to stay forward and will drift back eventually for one reason or another as the bumps get steeper. In the video, unless I'm misunderstanding, it seems that much more of an outside ski weight distribution is discussed. Is this accurate? I'm all sitting here like wait, what do I do now?? lol
