A freestyle skiing discipline in which competitors are judged on the speed, skill and flair with which they complete a course and two jumps.
From an Alpine dialect word 'mugel', referring to the mound formed in a piste by the repeated turning of skis that follow the same tracks, thus carving out ruts. Steeper slopes have more pronounced moguls.
Mounds of snow (aka - bumps)
