I would like to know if there are moguls that are rocks covered with snow as well as just very packed snow from turning. I belong to a group who are arguing about the different kinds of moguls. Sunny
There are rocks covered with snow on ski hills but they are not called "moguls". A "mogul" is a bump of snow formed by skiers shaping the snow over repeated runs.
What you are talking about is a "snow covered rock" also frequently known as a "rock".
Seriously, if a mogul was a rock covered in snow it would very quickly become an exposed rock. Real moguls move and shift (uphill) as the snow is shaped and pushed by other skiers.
A rock can be neither shaped nor pushed so it would not behave like a "real" mogul. After a couple skiers have skied over the rock, the snow would get scraped away and the rock exposed.
Hello, I live in Colorado and was wondering what you think the best resort for bumps is. Thanks for your help!
Winter Park Resort and sister mountain Mary Jane is undisputedly the best mogul skiing in the world. Mary Jane Mountain is 98% black tryangle rated runs. Northerly facing and recieving very nice snowfall, most of them are ungroomed and fully allowed to mogul. I discovered it in the seventies when I was 14. Only after living there and competing in moguls skiing for nearly 20 years was I ready to retire from Mary Janes magical mogul magnitism. I have been away for nearly twenty years now and still recall it fondly, yerning to return. Good luck
