Know Where You're Going
Pick a line and stick with it so you can focus on technique.
Stand at the top of any mogul field and look down the fall line. Find a pathway through the troughs below you. (If you don't see it right away, move to your left or right until you do.) You are looking at a "zipper line." There are several zipper lines in every slope of bumps.
This line-the black, most difficult route-may look too straight, too direct, too fast. Remember, it's only a basic map. There are easier (blue) and easiest (green) variations on this line, which let you turn your skis higher on the sides of bumps and farther across the hill to slow down. The line doesn't change-only the length of your path.Learn how to ski your line, and stay in it. If you know where you are going, you can worry less and focus more on technique.
