Corey Pickos school?

Has anyone skied at Corey Pickos’ place in Santa Rosa Beach Florida? I am going to be down there for a week and I am hoping to find a little time to sneak a few sets in. My cousin went there and said he received very little instruction (though he was very beginner). I don’t want to haul my gear all the way down there if I am just going to get a pull through the course and no coaching. Any input would be great. Thanks.

From a beginner's perspective, one thing at a time, no need for much coaching. Corey watched me ski and told me the one thing I needed to work on most (same as your cuz). I worked on it (for me it was a balanced stance and no stiff back leg) and a few weeks later ran the course at 30 mph for the first time. I've had the opposite approach, a bunch of information. That didn't work so well for me. In a high stress situation like a slalom course my mind can barely focus on even one thing, past one ball I'm just hanging on :). YMMV

What are you kidding? Bring your Gear. Currently at Cory's is Dan Ardvarko, Regina Jaquess, Both Adam and Cory Picko's, Stephen Seal, and a few others that I can not name at this time coaching and skiing their. Was their over the weekend and skied with Regina, Adam P, Cory and Ardvark had a great time and afterward we had a great Mexican Dinner.

You will not be disappointed!

Thanks. When I say my cousin was a beginner, I meant he was learning to wakeboard there (his first problem) and he had never done it before. I only ask because he had some younger kids driving him and I guess they gave him no instruction at all. I will not be wakeboarding though, and it sounds awesome. I am definitely going to line it up. Thanks again.

@WBLskier I was down there for a few days this past summer. Great site and great people. Not to mention they know what they are doing. I skied with Dan and Corey ( and another guest coach) while I was there and got to see some great skiers ski as well, Regina, Adam, (Corey took a set), Dan, Adam S. and some guy named @Jody Seal was hanging around too. Never a dull moment you will have a good time and lear a lot.

I have skied at Corey the last three springs. If you are a three event skier, you can't do any better. If you are a slalom only skier, you may be able to get better coaching somewhere else, but I am a level 8 skier and have been nothing but fully satisfied. One key to getting out of ski school what you are hoping to get out of ski school is to tell them up front what you are trying to accomplish. And don't forget that it is your job to show up fit enough to ski enough to ski long and hard enough to accomplish something. Hint: If you spend the whole week working on your gate, someone thinks you are out of shape.

 

By the way, one of the things I like best about Cory's is that there are a lot of very good junior skiers there. In my mind, it is a lot cooler to hang out with the juniors (the up and coming heart and soul of the sport) than a bunch of old guys from New York. BTW, I am 55. And from NY. Go Giants!
