      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Extinct- Bump skiiers?

Recommended Posts

...Park City ...Deer Valley. Skier only resorts.

 

I believe Taos still bans snowboards.

 

So does Alta, Buncha butt-wigglin' homos who can't ski powder.

If you don't believe which I'm sure you don't, grab a pair of skiis and take a trip to either Park City or Deer Valley. Upon arrival you will find long never ending runs of moguls and why you ask??? Skier only resorts. Both of those places still only allow skiers and funny thing is they still have wicked mogul runs even with the parabolic skiis everyone has.

 

Rules to live by:

"Short Skiis suck and Don't eat yellow snow." -Glenn Plake

 

Park Shitty allows snowboarders. Still you can find decent bumps there. Try non stopping the "shaft" or under Thaynes lift. The Hoist used to only allow 190 or more skis but I doubt it now because only 2% of skiiers are on anything that long now.

 

Deer Valley (no boarders) just hosted the World Cup mogul event and their mogul run rocks for moguls. They groom the shit out of most of their resort though so I can't say in general Deer Valley is the place to go.

 

Alta doesn't allow boarders either, but I don't go there for moguls per say. Still they don't groom a lot at Alta either so there are always bump runs.

 

For moguls I'd pick Sun Valley. Try Exhibition non-stop. Or Limelight if it hasn't been groomed for a while. There are lots of bump runs that never get groomed at Sun Valley!

 

I have no problem finding bump runs at Whistler or Blackcomb either.

 

I still like bumps at age 46 on tele skis, but I'm ol' skool!

Hadn't thought about it for a while, but there do seem to be less mogul runs. I can't say that I miss them, though. When I started skiing in the 70s, bumps were THE thing to do and I never liked them then and I don't miss them now.

 

It is cool to watch a really good bump skier rip down a face, though - you can actually watch their knees wear out second by second.

If its not powder its just survival skiing anyways.

 

If it's not powder you should be CLIMBING not skiing. :battlecage:

 

Bad snow is good practice for better skiing.
