Prove Yourself in the Bumps at These Resorts

Think you're an expert skier? These moguls will be the judge of that.
Publish date:

We get it, bumps are hard—unforgiving even. They take pride in making skiers look bad. And what’s worse, they’re usually located right under the chairlift, giving lift riders ample opportunity to distinguish (and judge) the skiers thriving, or just surviving, in the bumps. There’s no faking sound technical skills in the moguls, which is why they’re the ultimate proving ground. If you call yourself an expert skier, put yourself to the test in these classic bump runs. They'll decide if you speak the truth.

Ready to shred these famous runs and impress everyone watching? SKI Magazine teamed up with the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) to design the online course “How to Ski Bumps” to give intermediate to expert skiers the skills, tactics and technique they need to crush moguls. Enroll and get in-depth, step-by-step instruction from Michael Rogan and professional skier Marcus Caston to help you break through in your ability to ski—and enjoy—skiing’s toughest terrain.
