We ranked our favorite mogul mountains based on the number of available
mogul runs, percentage of advanced terrain and quality of mogul formations.
This mountain will kick your ass and you will leave happy.
They are fully dedicated and committed to the advanced skiers and
mogul skiing. Snowboarding is usually counterproductive to the
formation of moguls and was banned from the mountain entirely until the 2008-2009 ski season.
The signature Taos mogul run is "Al's Run" who's view greets all who
arrive at the mountain base with a sign telling beginners not to panic.
Note that Al's is under not one but two lifts with a large audience.
My favorite however is Longhorn which seems endless and leaves you wondering when it's going to end.
Taos was the host of the 2007 Salomon Extreme Freeride Championships.
See our review of Taos Ski Valley NM for more.
The Mary Jane (part of the Winter Park resort), dedicates itself to
moguls. You can find moguls on the entire mountain but runs like "The Drunken Frenchman" are notable.
This is the break down of the trails:
- Expert Only: 1% (Double black diamond)
- Most Difficult: 57% (Black diamond)
- Advanced: 22% (Blue-Black)
- Intermediate: 19% (Blue)
- Beginner: 1% (Green)
One of our favorite resorts for a mountain with advanced terrain coupled with a town of luxury and comforts.
If you like moguls check out Rock Garden, Exhibition or Upper Holiday.
Take the Alpine lift over by East Village to Far East, Triple Threat and Too Much.
These bump runs will leave you smiling.
See our review of Copper Mountain CO for more information.
Thirty five percent of their terrain is dedicated to the advanced skier and the "black diamond". The run "High Rustler" (shown here) is worthy of mention.
Great snow and cheap lift tickets will get you to like this mountain even more.
See our review of Alta UT for more information.
Killington gets our number two vote for the best moguls in the Northeast USA.
The run "Outer Limits" is the site of many mogul competitions and attracts many challengers.
See our review of Killington VT for more information.
While it is better known for its "out of bounds" terrain and Corbet's cliffs,
it's also a pretty good mogul mountain.
Head on over to Thunder quad lift and check it out.
