Breck’s Ski & Snowboard School Tips: Instructor Tommy breaks down the bumps [video]
Tommy’s tips for moguls include controlling your speed as you make your way down the run. How do you do this, you may be wondering? Tommy explains that taking a wider line around the mogul is the best way for controlling your speed.
“Consider a wider line: Starting on the uphill side of the bump – or the top of the bump – reaching out with your feet to the side of the trough, then coming down to the top of the bump directly below you,” Tommy says.
This strategy helps you make a clean line and have more control, which is a far superior version compared to twisting your skis at the top of your turn and sliding down the mogul. This method also makes going down moguls more fun and easier on your body.
Taking a lesson from the talented Breckenridge Ski and Ride instructors is a great way to advance your skills on the mountain, no matter your skill level. Book a session for your next day on the mountain.
