Slalom destinations?

SkichiroSkichiro Posts: 4 New Baller
We are up here in the Northwest and looking for a place warm to ski as winter approaches. Are there any places you can just pay by the set or day to ski? Not really looking for coaching, just want to have a ski weekend in the sunshine.

    If you make it to Orlando, I would be happy to give you a pull

    @Skichiro You can pay by the set at LaPoint Ski Park in Orlando. Great wind protection, and only a couple of miles down the road from Performance. The only downside? You may have to put up with @lpskier!
  • I may be in florida for the month of January. Looking for home to rent on a lake with a course, and someone to ski with. Not sure of area yet but maybe around St Pete?

    McGinnis Ski School in Ft. Lauderdale is very chill, you can buy blocks of time and use as you want.

    Sacramento, lessons or rides. If you have time on your hands you may even get hired.

    Another excellent option relatively nearby.

    LaPoint Ski Park can't be beat for it's pay/per set setup.

    @Skichiro I'm also in the PNW, it may not be warm but as long as it isn't raining you can ski here all year long. At least I do and some of my crazy neighbors. I'm always looking for new ski friends, I have a zo boat and live on a course.

    @Skichiro just like @Dockoelboto the Wednesday night crew is from the PNW and we ski year around also. All you need is a drysuit a boat with a heater and hot water shower just ask a our resident cold weather expert @Rednucleus πŸ˜‚. Our regular ski site Bow lake with a course is closed for the season so we free ski Big lake or Clear lake. You are welcome to join us anytime. Just show up with your ski

    If you don't have a shower, a big ice chest full of hot water on the dock or in the boat is great as it gets colder.

    Have a look at our facility, Winter Garden Water Ski, on Insta (wintergardenwaterski) and FB... aka by many as the back lake at Isles of Lake Hancock. We are just north of Disney (two miles).
    PM me for bookings

    @drew you need to come back to Cedar Ridge and bring Charlie, we have tons of room and likely get to hang with @jayski!

    Hey Mike, I absolutely loved skiing the Ridge, and I definitely need to bring Charlie over sometime!🀘

    @gwaterski Does the rental include the boat?
  • dvskierdvskier Posts: 661 Crazy Baller
    @Laz link says boat rental available.
  • MitchellMMitchellM Posts: 42 Baller
    I'll vouch for the buoy bungalow posted by @GWaterski . I've stayed there with my family twice and we're going back again in a few weeks. You can't ask for a more family friendly, water ski destination and renting from Gary and Kelly is fantastic. Nice to deal with other skiers and the lake has a great course.

    Sunrise view from the house to entice others.

    The boat is available for rental on

    I 2nd The boarding School in Orlando area. I was just there this week for a day and half and had an absolutely amazing time. Freddie was super cool, and an awesome coach.
