New Mogul Article, Book Reviews, Et Cetera

Mogul miscellany:
  • Heart of NH Magazine has published a 1,000-word mogul skiing article of mine on line. This same article will run in the winter, print issue of the magazine, due out in February. To jump to the article, go to: http://www.heartofnh.com/outdoors/skiing/BumpSkiing/Moguls101.html
  • My mogul book has received two official reviews now, both positive. Mitch Kaplan, Vice President of the North American Snowsports Journalists Association, called the book " the most apt...description of mogul skiing I've read to date." In its holiday gift guide, FirstTracksOnline.com said the book was "concise and well-written" and "well worth the $10.80 price tag."
  • Guess I should now note that the $10.80 introductory price on my book retail page (www.LearnMoguls.com) has been raised a bit to $11.25. That's still affordable, though!
  • May the last days of the year find you all in soft bumps with lines to your liking!

Dan, Read your book over the last couple of days, while up at Attitash. Its nice to see that my mistakes are so well documented ;)

I've taken several bump lessons, which have ranged from pitiful, to OK. The best being a few pointers and a lot of skiing, but not exactly well structured.

The way you broke mogul skiing down, and provided simplified explainations and drills to gain confidence with each aspect is great. I've started working through the drills, and am already seeing improvement. Now if I can start maintaining my timing on Absorption/Extention instead of getting spit out of the mogul field after 10 bumps, I'll be even happier.

The book should be required reading for any instructor teaching moguls. If you ever start doing on mountain clinics... Sign me up.

Todd,
I'm glad you liked my book. Thanks for giving it a try and for leaving a comment here on the blog.
Keep your eyes open for bumps on gentle slopes -- good place to practice that absorption and extension. If you're hanging in for 10 bumps, though, you're not too far from making it work for whole runs. Keep up the good work.
