    As a skier that learned to ski moguls at Waterville Valley in New Hampshire in the 70’s this is not good technique. They had three coaches that had skied on the pro mogul tour. We were not coached to stem turn or ski like this guy in this video.. If you want to see great mogul skiing find a Johnny Mossely video on YouTube. He won Gold in 1998 Olympic Games in the moguls. Johnny doesn’t stem he absorbs, flexes, extenders and tips the skis. Also in 1998 he was still skiing a traditional mogul ski. Even today (2019) competitors use a more traditional type of ski for moguls.

    This is so rubbish. He has a terrible A-frame and he is just hopping from one ski to the other and much of the time not parallel. Good skiers never skied this badly in the 80s, this is how they really did then https://youtu.be/g7W26SvVYDo

    WOW real moguls not artificially made like in the Olympics and NO STUPID SNOWBOARDS that ruin moguls with big icy slides and tops knocked off. This is why Alta and Deer Valley will always be the greatest and kind sebastian for real moguls

    Notice at the very beginning of the film, those skiers had ankle high laced leather boots with free heels; skiing in the trees!

    wow this takes me back, thanks for the post/flashback! Anyone remember 'Jet Skis'? Think that was the name, those high calf support attachments strapped onto backs of boots to help lean way back over the tails. Broke my leg bad in mid 70s with those on but still nothing but fond memories of those oddities today, cheers.

    Awesome vid.. I just posted a comment on Patrick Daneen vid in regards to his technique. Fantastic skier. I grew up skiing back in 70's and fell in love with mogul skiing back in the early 80's. What a huge difference in styles. I ski moguls like Peter, it's looking at a mirror.. creepy. Got to love those defined pole plants. With the advancements of equipment and good physical ability I never skied bumps as good as I do now at the age of 51. I can still turn heads on under chair mogul runs. What a rush!!!
