What up, ski family? We are getting teased with spring weather here in Bumpass. The lake is warming up and opening day (April 3) is just over two weeks away! For those eager to get the season started, you can start booking your sessions with our new online booking system right here on the website. If you plan to be a regular or buy a new ski, you may want to consider becoming a "Premium Member" to access discounted lessons, sets and get 20% off all equipment and merch. Bear with me as we all learn to navigate this new system and reach out if you need any additional help.
I would like to take this opportunity to formally announce some exciting upgrades. Say hello to - "The Ski Lodge," "The Guest Cabin" and "The PLW Pro Shop."
The Ski Lodge
The Guest Cabin
Click on either of the photos above to go straight to the Airbnb listing, where you can see more photos of the spaces. Better yet, go ahead and book your next stay on airbnb. Many of you stayed here with us in "The Ski & B." That was a fun experience for us and our guests, but with a baby on the way and Covid forcing us to distance, this new setup is an exciting evolution of the ski school. You can now stay right by the lake, have more privacy and the feeling of being home away from home. We hope that these new facilities add tremendous value to the whole ski school experience and provide a unique getaway.
The PLW Pro Shop
We've made our 11th annual order with Action T-Shirts of RVA for new and awesome Peace, Love & Waterskiing swag for the season. In the line up this year are new towells, guys board shorts, ladies tank tops and baby onesies and bibs for our little one and the toddlers in your life. I will also be carrying a big inventory of Radar gear, new life jackets, stickers and more. I can't thank all of you enough for your support over the years. It is your ski lessons, stays at the airbnb, equipment and merchandise purchases that brought us to this point. I'm excited to see what the future holds and how we can keep growing it together. The Buskey Cider Cup
Just a reminder to go ahead and sign up for the Buskey Cider Cup! We had the owners of Buskey out for a visit this week and all of our plans are underway! Here are the online sign up links: BUSKEY CIDER CUP (FUN) on May 29 - BUSKEY CLASS C on May 30 There is still plenty of time and ample space but we do expect to fill both days and a $10 late fee goes into effect on May 1. So don't wait - lock in your spot now! See my prior blog post for more specific information on these events. That's it for today, my friends. I hope you are all healthy, strong and ready for a real humdingerwapdango of a ski season - it's just around the corner!
