Hoping to slalom in Covington, LA

I’ll be in Covington, LA for a few days next weekend and looking for a place to get in a slalom set. I grew up in New Orleans and skied my first tournament in Covington back around 1977 (I think it was on the Bogue Falaya River). Any contacts out there? Happy to reciprocate with a set in Winter Garden, FL anytime.

    Tri-Lakes in Zachary, LA (just north of Baton Rouge), home of Bennett's Ski School, is probably your best bet. There is a private lake near Covington, but I don't know a contact or how active it is now. There is also a private lake on the south side of I-12 in Slidell for which I do not have a contact. I don't know how active it is either. I am almost positive there is no slalom course anymore on the Bogue Falaya River.

    Thanks for the feedback! I skied my last tournament at Tri-Lakes in 1980. I’ve seen the ski lake off of I-12 near Slidell but never skied there.

    Isn’t he talking about Margaret Ann’s place?

    @aupatking Margaret Ann's place is the site off I-12 in Slidell I believe.

    There are two sites in the Covington area - Covington Ski Ranch (Dipol's) and Ski Scape (Bobby Franks & Danos). I'm not sure how active either is.

    Thanks all! I’ll probably schedule a set at Jay’s.

    Is Margaret Ann still skiing? She apparently hasn't skied any tournaments in a while.
