Arthur at Eden ski lake?

Arthur at Eden ski lake? I saw something about Arthur having to return to France to renew his visa and was denied? He has been here 7 years. Anyone know anything more? And what Eden is doing in the meantime?

    I read the same thing. Awesome coach and a great guy. Hope he can navigate the visa and return...

    Ask Trent Finlayson how that process worked for him. He was stuck out of the US for a long time. He's very shady, though, so I get it.

    Lots of drama with visas in COVID land. Sounds like a H1B but all have their own drama. Many work or student visas require persons to return home basically as proof of the fact that can still reside in their home nation.. A close friend who is Brazilian and married to a US born lady had to return to Brazil while his work visa was being converted. Get a good lawyer and do the work.

    Sure hope he manages to get back to Eden! We visit once a year as a family to get through our Canadian winter...although that too may be on pause this year...

    Arthur and his wife are stuck in France. If you want to help him get back to his house and their dog email [email protected] Share your thoughts about Arthur, his coaching and the contributions he's made at Eden.

    We've setup a go fund me page too. Here's the link.

    Thanks for the help!

    @TonyT thanks for doing this. Arthur is a such a positive force in the waterskiing community. Hopefully many find it in their heart to donate and write letters of support.

    Thanks for the Go Fund Me link. I’ll contribute. Also Richard is asking for letters of support for Arthur. He has an immigration attorney working on it.

    Zane, looking forward to skiing w you this winter I hope.

    @Zaneh2oski came to our site this past Saturday and did a small coaching clinic for 5 of us. Tremendous coaching talent. Huge thank you. You guys will love him in the interim. I’m hoping Arthur and his wife are able to return soon but you guys at Eden are getting an incredible coach in the interim. Thanks again Zane
