Unthink And Just Turn Or Drift To Flow Through Moguls

Skiing a mogul run is often viewed as a very complex undertaking but it can be boiled down to a very simple process which is: UNTHINK and just turn or drift. That means no stopping and no traversing. If you just turn or drift then you will be able to smoothly flow like water down a hill through a mogul run.

Skiing a mogul run is often viewed as a very complex undertaking but it can be boiled down to a very simple process which is: UNTHINK and just either turn or drift. That means no stopping and no traversing. If you just turn or drift then you will be able to smoothly flow like water down a hill through a mogul run.

It is easy to become too analytical about when and where to turn in moguls or become overly concerned about finding a green, blue or black line. That often results in paralysis-by-analysis  and you become hesitant. Keep it simple. UNTHINK and when in doubt, just do one of two things:

  • TURN to a DRIFT … and continue drifting to the next friendly turn location or
  • DRIFT to a TURN 

So, only TURN to a DRIFT or DRIFT to a TURN while keeping a nice, steady, controlled flow down the mogul run. Just turn or drift. It is that simple.
