    It's Matt Rini's in Orlando at his ski school. Great setup!

    Just got back from Thomas Degasperi's site in Orlando. Excellent experience. Just north of Disney, great lake, great instruction, excellent rates.

    Wife doesn't want to go to Florida, so that's not an option right now, I would live to spend a week down there skiing sets all over, so PHX or Cali it is, just looking to blow the dust off after this ridiculous winter here in Alberta! And get some instruction if possible. Looks like some gorgeous facilities in PHX but no schools or clubs? Central California? Any insight would be awesome thanks!

    Go to Sunset Ranch. Located south of Sacramento. I'm sure Robby will be along shortly to give you more info.

    SunSet Ranch might be your place then. @waterskigirl‌

    I'll vouch that Sunset Ranch is a fantastic site. And Doug and Robby are awesome. I skied there about 16 months ago. Top notch all around

    Doug and Robbie at Sunset Ranch are great people, lots of fun and great coaching. Been there a couple of times, highly recommend it. Well worth it, I will be going down there again this summer some time.

    well heres the update, going to PHX.... ugh, rented a house, did some research, turns out its only 1.5 miles from firebird lake! (ASU ski team site) and $250 for a month pass! any skiing is better then none as our ski season is a couple months away yet.

    Going to Cozumel in a week and will do some skiing, but away from the snow and work with family so well worth it.
