We had such a great time last year, Gordon Rathbun has invited me back to put on another ski-tuning clinic for his guests at Ski Paradise. And before he fills the roster with his regulars, I thought it would be nice to give the BallOfSpray faithful a chance to participate. It’ll be a great week!
You’ll get to ski your brains out in the middle of winter. And when you’re not on the 85° water, you’ll have a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of ski-tuning. You don’t have to be an advanced skier for any of this either. I’ll be tailoring personal attention to each guest individually; because a ski that works with you rather than against you makes progress easier and way more fun—regardless of your skiing ability.
I won’t just be tuning up everyone’s gear either. The goal is to teach everyone the nuances of ski behavior, and how to custom tune that behavior for yourself so the ski does what you’re expecting it to do. Having a full week makes it possible to work through more than one setup too. How would you like to experience long/shallow and short/deep setups back to back AND understand why one might be your favorite? You can get a lot of ski-tuning questions answered, then grab a coach and take your new setup straight onto the water to work on technique. It’ll be skiing nirvana.
By the time you go home, your ski, your skiing, your ski-tuning craft, and your tan will all be tuned up for an early jump on the season. And I can’t imagine a better venue than Ski Paradise for this kind of immersive ski adventure. It’s pretty nice getting to do all this surrounded by palm trees, fun people, five star accommodations, and more gourmet food than you can eat.
