The Ski With Wade Podcast – Episode 08

Students from my camp at Jack Travers




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.




-       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.




“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.”
