mogul-techniques

When you are learning mogul. There are four primary ways or routes that you can choose when mogul skiing.

  1. Blue line. It involves taking your turn at the flat top of the mogul while skiing,the ridge line of the mogul, which is adjacent to the point where you initiated the turn before you finally drift downwards to the next flat mogul top where you suppose to initiate you next turn.
  2. Green line. This involves simultaneously initiating and completing turns I the same mogul flat top and then drifting downwards to the secondary fall lines to the adjacent/next flat mogul top that you have selected for your next turn.
  3. Trough line. The trough line technique involves skiing down via the troughs that surround each of the moguls. Through the trough technique, you follow the troughs in each mogul while making quick turns that links one trough to another. However, this method requires that you make quicker reflexes and contraction movements.
  4. Zipper line. It involves skiing in a straight run while facing directly down the fall line. It involves heavy jumping between the moguls, which makes the skier’s knees up around their head. The Zipper line also requires high reflexes and rapid contraction movements to succeed.
