Looking for a Ski School.......

I am looking for a well respected ski school in the Texas or surrounding area to refine some of my slalom skills and iron out a few little bugs…..

I wanted to see if some of the members here had some recommendations on some schools within reach of my area (San Antonio, Texas).

Thanks

I skied Alan at DFW ski school. He is an excellent instructor. I highly recommend going there. It is a beautiful place. I went April '06. It was great because I was the only ski student, and there were two wakeboard students. We were the only three students there, so we got many sets in that day. I got some pics of the site if you want them. Just PM me.

+7. I have been going there once per since 2003. Had a great session there last Friday. Don't let me skills reflect on his abilities. He's working to correct 20 years of bad habits on my part.

He is pretty full this year, but usually has a spot or two open on a given day. I have never left feeling I could have skied another set. Usually pretty sore for a few days.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
