Liquid Edge-Farmer City Illinois

I have an opportunity to receive some slalom lessons at the Liquid Edge. While I have the time, it will be a 9-10 hour drive. My goal would be to run through the course for the first time. I have been a recreational slalom skier for 30+ years but never ran a course. I am wondering is it worth the drive or if anyone who is in the know can comment. Thanks in advance. Oh...if I travel on Sunday I am told Wade Cox will be there Monday morning. Cool!

Doug is our dealer. He is the best. They have ski lessons, wake board lessons, and cable park. He is very good with basics and form. Very patient. You will have fun.

By the way Wade is great. If he is around I'm sure he will give you some pointers.

Absolutely, positively worth the 9 hour drive. And Wade Cox as a bonus. You MUST go. You'll be amazed at how much you will learn.

Scheduled for a lesson with Wade on Monday morning and a couple with Doug in the afternoon. Leaving the possibility of more on Tuesday.

Guess i better get prepared to change some deeply rooted bad habits.

Spent three hours with Wade this morning. What a treat to learn and talk with Wade.

Sure is humbling to feel one is a decent skier and after a few hours have so much going through your head your not certain of anything. Dumping poor habits and picking up better ones is not for the faint-hearted.

One more session with the owner Doug and I'm calling it a day.
