Slushy Bumps – Various Turn Shapes

This old Piste to Peak Volume 2 teaser shows some seriously slushy spring bump skiing filmed one May day on Whistler mountain. The demonstrations include a variety of tactical lines and turn shapes including ultra narrow corridor zipper lines, broad berms, and rounder short turns. The snow conditions were soft and extremely slow making rounder turns only possible on relatively steep terrain. 

Demonstration Objectives:

  • Show a variety of tactics and turn shapes in accordance with the varied terrain features and slushy snow conditions.
  • Have the mass take a relatively smooth path and link turns arc to arc.
  • Maintain fall line without shopping (adjust line if desired but without a traverse)
  • Controlled decent while maintaining momentum in the slow snow.
  • Have fun!
