All Ski Club Members, Our new Club Clinic Program is coming together. We have confirmed dates and instructors for most clinics and will continue to inform everyone as more clinics are added to the schedule.
The program is designed to provide beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers an opportunity for more direct and personal instruction from skilled instructors inside and outside our club in multiple skiing disciplines. Our future plans are to have this schedule; ready for distribution in late spring and have a larger list of available clinics. The money collected for each clinic is used to pay for outside instructors, boat gas, and thank you’s to the club volunteers providing instruction.
Please use the associated TeamSnap link(s) to register for the desired clinic. Clinic details are provided below and on the first page of the registration. Full payment is required to secure your spot in the clinic which can be done electronically thru the registration link. Please note there is an instructor and contact for each clinic, which may or may not be the same person. Please contact the “contact” with any questions regarding clinic details.

Rain and storms caused the first Home Show Mandatory practice to be postponed, but it did not affect the appetites of our skiers and their families! A large crowd huddled under the pavilion and devoured 35 pounds of taco meat and a variety of toppings. Home Show Coordinator Jim Mondl gave an excellent overview of what the Home Show will be like to all families as well. Final Mandatory is scheduled for Thursday, June 28. Please arrive at 5pm to get set up so we can have our first tight line behind a boat at 5:30pm and perform as many acts as possible before dusk. Food will be available, courtesy of Angie Hopping and her minions, after skiing is over.
For this practice, please ensure that you and your family properly dispose of any trash you have from your meal. There was a large amount of plates, boats, napkins, and cans/bottles left behind last night that the committee had to clean up.
