Learn to Ski

Maybe joining the Ski Sprites is a little too much, but you or your kids want to learn how to ski? Perfect! We are hosting a Learn to Ski Event at Lake Altoona to teach the skills needed to water ski in a safe manner. After this event, you will be able to impress anyone on your lake!

Q: What ages are appropriate?
A: Typically 8 years and older. It is recommended to be comfortable in the water to participate.

Q: What do we need to bring?
A: You'll want a swimsuit and towel. Sunscreen is usually a good idea. On cool days you'll want warm clothes for afterwards.

Q: Where?
A: Lake Altoona County Park Beach, the same place as our Ski Sprites' shows. Note the park does require an Eau Claire County Parks Vehicle Pass which is $5 daily or $30 annual and is good for all Eau Claire County parks.

Q: What time should we arrive?
A: You will be emailed your session information.

​Q: What if it is raining?
A: In case of light rain or scattered showers, we will typically continue to ski as long as there is no thunder or lightning. If a session needs to be cancelled due to thunderstorm or other sever weather, those signed up for the session will be contacted via text message or phone number that you entered in the on-line signup form. We'll also post a message on the skisprites.com homepage and Facebook page.
