Why should you want to learn to ski moguls? The short answer: because the moguls are where it’s at. “There was a time in skiing history where everybody would be skiing the bump runs, and there was this big camaraderie, this community feeling of ripping a bump run,” Plake says. “You didn’t have to be good—obviously you were inspired by the people who were—and it was this big, social thing.”
Learning to ski moguls—and enjoy it—just means that you don’t have to pin your skiing hopes and dreams on elusive powder days. After all, you can ski moguls at any resort, on any day of the season. And the best part about skiing moguls? The more, the merrier.
