    Joan is more than just a great skier. She (and Chuck) are great people. Warm, generous and genuine. Cool to see her recognized.

    @eleeski‌ AGREED! Joan and Chuck are an example of all that is good in this world. They always open up their home and are so enjoyable to be around.

    I really believe that waterskiing is the fountain of youth. More women need to see this! Since 2009 April Coble Eller has held a "Get Fit for Women Week" at Coble Ski School. One year we had women skiers in every decade of life through 80. The stories that come out of our women's week are inspiring. We have seen women turn their lives around and upside down to ski once they got the bug. So many women were grateful for a dedicated women's week because it gave them a place to learn the sport without pressure. In fact, you have never seen a group of women root for each other as strongly as they do during that week. It's a lifetime sport and women are the untapped potential for growth.

    Keep it up, Joan! (I don't know her, but am assuming from posts above that she goes by her middle name.)
