    You make this look effortless, but when I try I am working so hard to even get close to doing it. Is it really as effortless as you make it look?

    Certainly good for moguls, even atrocious moguls like those sculpted ones. Why anyone would ski through the troughs is an absolutely mystery, though. Give me real bumps every time!

    Wow! I have taught skiing for over twenty years ( semi retired now). That is one of the coolest and most effective drills for the bumps , I have ever seen! Why? Because, it is fantastic at teaching you one of the most important , yet overlooked skills in the bumps. That is being able to press the tips of your skiis, down onto the backside of the mogul, exactly when initiating the new turn. IMO, it is the secret to high level mogul skiing. It is the one skill most never learn. Because, either they never heard of it, or they don't know how to learn it. I have a way of teaching it, that involves a drill where you practice pulling your feet back at the finish/start of the turn. Which does work well. 
    However, the Dolphin turn incorporates more of the difficult to master changes in pitch and balance ( going up the front of the mogul while absorbing the pressure, followed by quickly reversing and extending your legs in order to keep ski to snow contact, down the backside). Essentially, you are going up a steep short hill, followed abruptly by going down a little longer steep hill. A tricky feat of balance, pressure regulation, along with rotating the skiis and changing the edge angle! That is a mouthful. No wonder few ever master high level mogul skiing. 
    However, it is always easier to learn a complex athletic motion by breaking apart the various skills involved. Here, he has separated one of the most difficult to master, and made it quite easy to learn ( well, relatively easy, anyway!). Being able to effectively press the skiis down the backside of the mogul, facilitates excellent speed control, and allows you to really control the tun shape. Well done!

    Je ne vois pas très bien l'intérêt de ce virage qui réclame des efforts physiques, de surcroît sur piste lisse quand un virage skis en contact avec la neige ferait très bien l'affaire. J'ai bien aimé les enchaînements dans les bosses, excellent exercices !

    You make it look so gracefully easy…I shoulda cut those skills 30 years ago, 56 now…Florida rez., I dunno need to average some hours skiing annually and haven't lately, wish I could. Worked in ski school for Park City Mountain Resort in 2005 took all their Alpine workshops as an employee learned alot working 1/2 season that year. I love skiing and I encourage any 1st timer to just know before you go, your gonna fall in love with it.

    used to be when I saw someone with a  helmet on I thought "what's wrong with them" , now when I see one without a helmet on, I think the same thing.
