Is there anyone who would be will to give a slalom pull on Wednesday and Thursday next week so my daughter can get some practice in before her competition day?

    We will be running a practice lake every day staring on Sunday at Lake 5/Practice Lake. We will also run practice on Main and Turnpike lake after competition completes for the day.

    Pentalago is 35-45 minutes North in Palm City, if people want to come up and take a tour of the site we will give them a pull. We have 42 lots on 5 interconnected lakes, starting in the low 200's. Contact Greg at 772 678 8148

    Thank you for the info. I know there is practice but I was trying to avoid getting a ticket early in the morning and then just waiting around to ski. We are trying to fit in a little family vacation as well. I was trying to see if I could find someone to give us a couple pulls and we would pay for there gas. But thank you trying to help us out, we are going to try and get a ticket and ski one of the days.

    Because of abundant practice availability typically wait times are not bad

    Buy a practice ticket and get to the practice lake stupid early. Ski and have the rest of the day to play.

    I have never had to wait long for a practice slalom ride at Okee. They are very efficient with great driving. Last time I got Les Todd and Nate Smith as balast on my practice ride. I go in the morning but not super early.

    Nate is not much ballast.

    Right now we are practicing staying dry and not being electrocuted by some pretty fierce lightning. Other than that, things are good!

    I think the crew on the practice lake at Okee did a great job. Even with the weather challenges and high demand, they pulled a ton of rides.
