Where to ski in Pensacola, FL

ellenmellenm Posts: 27 Baller
I will be in Pensacola next week and was wondering if it is possible to ski in Milton, FL. It's only about 30 minutes from where we will be staying, but I don't know anyone in that area. It looks like a 4 lake site, so I'm hoping I could get in touch with someone who lives there to get a pull.

    Not to hijack the thread, but my cousin spotted a ski lake community in Panama City beach but could not remember the name. Does anyone know of it?

    When was in Destin I went to Cory Pickos' waterski school in Santa Rosa Beach.

    Call Tom, that place is incredible. I'm about an hour away but am between boats. If I can get one on our lake, I'll be happy to pull you

    Pickos is a nice hour drive from Pensacola.
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    @Jody_Seal - what's the place in North PanamaCity? It's a single lake lined with houses.
  • Jody_SealJody_Seal Posts: 3,249 Mega Baller
    @Booze , that would be Kirkland manor.. very short, the lake should have an overlapping 8 bouys on it. No one really skis there except the guy that devolved it.

    @Jody_Seal ... If you ever here of any houses or lots for sale on Lake 3, at Picko's, on the private lake, let us know. My Wife loves that area and would sell our Lake House here in Orlando in a minute to move there.

    Special Thanks to Performance Ski and Surf and the Denali Adam's !!!

    Hey ballers quick thread resurrection. I’m going to be in Navarre fl this week just east of Pensacola. Hopefully some one on here needs a ski partner one weekday afternoon? Or suggestions on where I can pay for a set.... looks like ski watch estates is pretty close.
    If not I’ll be in fair hope AL near the end of the week if anyone has any ski contacts there.

    If so feel free to respond to this thread or DM me

    Thanks!

    I was going to say Cory's, but that' a bit of a drive.

    Ski Watch is a special place, even if you do have to ski with @The_MS

    @Ed_Johnson when you visit to look at places you can rent our house on lake 2. 541-760-2779 I would have to agree with your wife, it’s paradise.

    skiwatch is cool. Great people. Ski with @The_MS or TJ. 4 lakes, no waiting.

    My PB is there, as are a few rocks we got at a funeral of a friend to deposit in a place special to each of us. I threw one toward 5 ball from TJ's dock, we put on in the ocean in Cozumel, and I dropped one from a plane I was flying on the lake where the deceased daughter has a cabin while they stood on the dock...pretty decent shot landed about 50 feet from them.

    I digress---it's just a special enough place to throw one of those stones into the water there. Skied a lot of tourneys there, had a lot of fun, some beer, some ribs, some music and some great skiing.
