    Question "Took a few too many moguls"

    Hello,

    I came across this sentence while reading a website:

    "A personal note: In 1991 at one of Pennsylvania's top ski resorts, I took a few too many moguls and put my back into serious misalignment, which caused me a great deal of pain."

    At first I thought it referred to some drink. ;)
    But it did not make sense, so I checked the dictionary and it gave the meaning as:

    n. A small hard mound or bump on a ski slope.
    My question is do people use this word in daily conversation, or is it mainly used in writing?

    Thank you.

    I would say it is used by those who ski.
