This tutorial will teach you how to control your speed efficiently and safely while skiing the moguls. Sometimes, we just get going too fast in the moguls and it is difficult to slow down. When this happens, it is a common habit to get back seat and in the defensive position. However this is the exact opposite of what you actually need to do. It’s very important to stay forward and balanced, and not let your weight get on your heels. Speed is determined by the size of your turns and also your absorption. So, if you’re going too fast and want to slow down, simply finish your turns more by making wider turns down the backside of the mogul. Just like on flats, the more turns you make and the wider they are the slower you will go. Through absorption you can also decrease your speed. You will go slower if you fully absorb the mogul and, after you reach the crest of the mogul, pull your feet back behind you. The more forward and better balanced you are while going through the moguls at any speed, the easier it will be to shave off some speed in the bumps. If you have good balance and absorption, slowing down is just a matter of getting on an edge and making turns, just like you would on flats.
