Come bum a pass in beautiful Bumpass, Virginia. Well, you can’t totally bum a ride, but you can ski on a world-class private ski lake, with a new boat, and expert coaching.

While you are here, why not demo a new ski and boots? We have everything you need, and serve all levels and ages.

Corey and his staff love teaching people to ski for the first time, master the slalom deep-water start and start running the course.

Already a seasoned swerver? Corey and his team can help you take your game to the next level with personalized, passionate, positive instruction. Being self-taught, as well as a career coach for over 10 years, Corey understands what it takes to improve and how to pass that information along in achievable portions.

Bring lunch and make yourself comfortable on the spacious dock and enjoy the natural setting and your fellow skiers. Or make it a vacation and enjoy the new ski school lodging accommodations. All that is ever required is a positive attitude and the will to improve.
