Whether you want to ski gentle moguls with comfort and confidence, turn heads on your local mogul run, or compete in mogul contests, this book will give you the specialized techniques you need to reach your goal.
In this first-of-its-kind book, mogul-skiing competitor Dan DiPiro reveals techniques that have remained largely unknown and unaddressed outside of competitive mogul-skiing circles.
Most skiers try to ski moguls using only groomed-trail techniques, says DiPiro. But the bumps require a special set of techniques that have nothing to do with groomed-trail skiing. With an understanding of these special techniques, most fit, expert skiers can become good mogul skiers, and some can become excellent mogul skiers and even mogul competitors.
For the aspiring mogul skier, this book is full of invaluable instruction. For the seasoned bumper, it's an ideal tune-up guide and a long-awaited affirmation. For all skiers interested in broadening their understanding of downhill skiing excellence, it's an original, eye-opening read.
