    Ohhhhh……greatest of all time. Yup.
    Great analysis. Great vid. Thanks for posting!

    Agree with notion that current WC setup is conducive to tediously uniform technique. Hence, the aerials competition that's been inserted — and the fully inverted airs are boring to me! Plus, where does it end? (risking death twice per run in the name of "progression"?)

    If anyone's still out there, I'd love to hear thoughts on the mechanics of getting your tips down between bumps — another thing JLB does so well (when necessary and/or just for pure aesthetics). I find it nearly impossible to self-analyze this when I'm skiing well so that I can consciously practice mechanics in other situations when I'm not (extremely flat light).

    What strikes me, aside from his ROM, is the amount of twist he generates to get the skis turning quickly. Definitely one of the greatest.

    Reilly, in your blog article you mention Edgar Grospiron who was 3rd at Lille-hammer. What about Sergei Choupletsov who was 2nd? (Sadly, he died shortly after that.) There's about a 1/2 hour vid on Sergi called "сhoupletsov full film".
    Also, anything coming up on mogul skiing on Projected Productions How To Ski series?

    Hi Reilly. How about Sergey Shupletsov: https://youtu.be/r5wmhYLd3Xo? JLB himself was a big fan of him. Moseley too.

    Hi Reilly How about the other GREAT Canadian Mogul skier Mikaël Kingsbury? Is he not better?? Surpassing his idol with more World Cup wins and world & Olympic Medals?

    The double turns are so bad ass!! I try to squeeze them in when I can when I ski.

    This is a great edit! I started watching old Greg Stump movies a few years ago and got completely obsessed with Fistful of Moguls. JLB is mentioned briefly but I've never seen this much footage of him. Incredible!

    Do you think Olympic mogul skiing would be more interesting if the bumps weren’t so perfect? And do you think his slightly straighter skis make it a little easier in comparison to the wider tipped slalom skis that you would use in the tech champs etc?
