Participants will have the opportunity to learn to ski on two skis. Those successful on two skis will be eligible to try a single slalom ski. Whether you’re learning to ski for the first time or just looking for a refresher, we’ll get you back on the water in no time.
Early Morning Session: 7:45am – 10am
Late Morning Session: 10:15am – 12:30pm
Pick a session (or both) and make your reservation early: space is limited. The cost is $50 per skier per session, which includes individualized instruction by some of our best skiers and instructors while being towed by our certified boat drivers. This Learn to Ski clinic is sanctioned by USA Water Ski.
There is no age limit to participate; however, the desire by the participant to learn how to water ski is important for his or her success. Additionally, it’s helpful if the participant knows how to swim to minimize fear of the water. No prior skiing experience is required. If you’re planning to register a skier who is younger than 8 years old, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to Expect
We’ll fit you in a properly-sized life jacket and start with a brief dry-land instruction so you’ll understand how to get up on the water sooner. Time to get into the boats! Each boat will have four Learn to Ski participants to maximize time with the instructors. Sorry, spectators, you’ll have to watch from shore.
Once you are up, your instructor will continue to help by providing pointers while you’re skiing. Arms straight, knees bent, back straight. As one skier grows tired, Learn to Ski participants will rotate so everyone gets plenty of time on the water in the two-hour session. Each skier will progress at their own speed, receiving instruction appropriate for their level.
Items to Bring
Participants are encouraged to bring the following:
water or a sports drink
a ski vest if you have one
(if you do not own a vest, we will provide one)
