Moguls

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Watching the moguls competition from Calgary. They've covered the course in something. I assume this is to give some extra definition to the slop/moguls as it seems to be flat light/the shady side of the mountain.

Anyway this is probably a numpty question... what do they cover the course in? It looks like they've had the christmas tree chipper spraying over the course.

I think they cover it in Christmas tree chippings. Its for definition

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

It is tree chips to help give some definition to the bumps in flat light.

@Russeh, bumps are the essence of skiing. If you canít ski bumps, you canít really ski.

Next numpty question - how do the chips not interfere with their skiing?! Puzzled Does it not catch under the skis?

@under a new name, I cannot ski bumps v well, ergo I probably can't really ski. Laughing (Though my instructor said I was good in Pozza last week but there were hardly any bumps for the five hours I was with him)
I hate bumps but still keep trying with the odd mogul lesson; I'm usually at the bottom of the group in terms of progress. Confused

@Cinsha, canít answer the question, maybe itís because pine is pretty resinous? I have skied over it many times, and it doesnít cause a problem.

I am not a very good skier, can't carve,for example, but i love challenging terrain and bumps and love to learn how to ski them properly! I practice every year.

@Cinsha, bumps are pretty specific. But once you get them...

The pine needles do not catch on the skis. They sink into the snow but allow competitors better definition in flat light. You need to be able to 'spot' the landing after doing the airs.
I am a moguls judge.

@mogulski, Ah, pine needles not tree chippings per se. Thanks for the answer. ..."spot the landing after doing the airs" - I just like to stay upright for a bit!
It is like poetry in motion when you watch an expert on them; I am in awe.
