The Ski With Wade Podcast – Episode 08

Students from my camp at Jack Travers

 

SUMMARY:

 

On this episode of the Ski With Wade podcast, I am on location at Sunset Lakes, Jack Travers Waterski School—one of my favorite places. I’m down here coaching a camp and I was able to snag a few students willing to talk ski with me. I cut it up with Ty Meeker, Rick Jones, Amy Snyder, Quinn Stufflebeam, and his son, Aiden, about pointers, tricks, and the in and outs of our favorite sport.

 

TOPICS COVERED:  

 

-       Balance and confidence.

-       The way gains in skiing seem to be incremental.

-       How I went from skiing to coaching.

-       Commonalities between all ages of skiers.

 

QUOTES:

 

“You know the drills, but you don’t do them like you should.”

 

“You’re way better off to say you don’t know than to lie about it, because he [Wade] sees everything.”

 

“The more we can eliminate extra movement, the more efficient we can be.”

 

“I establish a sort of mythology of drills to work through.”

 

“You have a limited ability to stay in the course.”

 

“If we’re building the plateaus ourselves, we’re already building the walls.”
