Everyone wants to know how to ski faster in the moguls—how to be able to link turns in one straight zipper line. Unfortunately, there’s no substitute for experience and preparation here. “It just develops over time. It’s something you need to work on,” says Glen Plake.
And building speed in moguls isn’t necessarily the thing you want to work towards. The bigger hurdle to overcome on your way to mastering moguls is how to control your speed, because it’s actually quite easy to build speed in moguls, especially if you miss a turn or two. Instead, what you want to work towards, says Glen, is building discipline in the moguls.
“Turn and pole plant wherever you are on the mogul run.” If you learn to do that, you’ll be able to start manipulating your turns to speed up or slow down when you want to, and when you need to.
