Moguls, also called Bumps, are humps or mounds of Snow which are developed when skiers perform turns on the same slope. They can increase in number, as well as in size, as skiers make turns around and over them. If an area on the slope becomes packed with Bumps, that section is named as a Mogul field. Bump Skiing may be a major problem to most skiers.
