What our water ski family has been saying.

"Wow! The coaching, staff, villa, and food was way beyond what I ever imagined. 6 Star! Thank you for making us feel at home in your home. As a beginner, I am amazed at all the progress we made in a week. Thanks Gordon and Tevin! After a week here who couldn't be a lover of this sport. Can't wait to bring the whole family next time."
Curtis Kramchynski, Calgary, Canada

"Ski Paradise. The name is a perfect description. The villa and hospitality truly is 5 star. The lagoon is awesome. Its the world class slalom teaching week for anyone with an interest in having fun and advancing their skills. The coaching is inspiring for any skill level. Thank you to all the staff especially Gordon and Gabriela."
Vince Sharp, New Zealand

"Often in life one comes into a situation where they have high expectations and they are not met. Not the case at Ski Paradise. You delivered on everything and more. Kyler and I are grateful for your hospitality, incredible accommodation and the best food we have had in a long time. Gordon and Tevin's coaching was excellent, and we will try to follow up your lessons with more "PB's" in the near future. Thank you so much and hopefully we will see you both again soon. If you're ever in Calgary????"
Kyler and Derek Boechx, Calgary, AB, Canada

"As a person who had never skied slalom previously I really didn't know what to expect. Tevin's coaching and enthusiasm allowed me to progress way beyond my expectations. The accommodations, food and staff were all first class. Thanks to Gordon and Gabriela for a week to remember."
Craig Halford, Calgary, AB, Canada

"What an awesome week! Not only did we have great food, company and weather, but Lorraine learned to ski on one! Even waved at a few buoys going by. The hospitality and luxury were fantastic. We can't wait to bring our two boys."
Mike and Lorraine, Chicago, IL

"What a fantastic week! This was our second trip to Ski Paradise and it was just as amazing as the first. We love the food, the friendships, the drinks in the hot tub and the ping pong games!!! The coaches were outstanding and all of us made tremendous advancements in our water skiing abilities. We can't wait to go to Spain in 2014. Many thanks."
Tera and David Gainey, Kelowna, BC. Canada

"Gordon and Gabriela, Yet another fabulous week here in your paradise! 3rd year in a line up of so many more! I love being here every year----so much to learn and so much to enjoy. Thank you for all that you do for us, your guests and for our sport. See you coon."
Eve and Ken Ferrante, Discovery Bay, CA

"Gordon and Gabriela, Thank you so much for the fantastic week! As the 'newbies' in the crowd it was even more than we expected. The villa is fabulous, the foot spectacular and the staff is phenomenal. We really felt like family instead of guests. Thank you for sharing your home with us."
Mike and Cathy Martens, Sacramento, CA

"End of another amazing couple of weeks here. Sad to go, but know we'll be back! Thank you for everything---the perfect holiday."
Terri and Ian MacDonald, BC Canada

"13 years later we made our return. Ski Paradise is even better than we remember. We turned 'kids week' into the 'Jemiolo Kids Week'. Andrea first time slalom ran the course at age 11. Michael first time slalom made deep water starts with the regular rope. Seth is a champion! Great people: great times!!"
Mike and Candace, Andrea and Michael Jemiolo

"My wife surprised me when she suggested that if my ski buddies would get their wives to go next season, she would go also. Sue could tell what a great time I had at your place. Please say hello to Seth and Bob for me (coaches). I was thinking about them today. While I was working on a patient this morning I just started laughing thinking about the funny times we had together. In addition to Gabriela being beautiful, she is a very classy lady. You are a lucky man to have her as your life partner. Take care."
Ted, IL

"You can’t do better than the best, and that's Gordon and Gabriela's Ski Paradise. I've been coming for 10 years now and should have come a lot earlier, but I’ll make up for it in the next few years."
Andy Mapple, 6 time World Slalom Champion

"Ski Paradise is the best place to ski in the world from November to May."
Water Ski Magazine

"Thanks for another wonderful week at Ski Paradise! Fabulous coaching, great food, awesome guests! Lots of fun! Personal bests aren’t so bad either! I love it here. Looking forward to visit #7 next year."
Alison Webb, Seattle, Washington

"Wow, what a great week! I am exhausted. My arms and legs are tired from water skiing, abs from laughing, and I ate too much of your great food! Your coaches helped me blow my previous P.B. out of the water. I feel like a slalom skier now. We made lots of new friends, and I hope to see them all again. It was a great group. We are sad to leave, but look forward to next year."
Randy and Wendi Warm, Whistler, BC Canada

"The absolute best in an all inclusive water ski vacation. The coaches, the villa and the water ski site are all 5 star! Make sure this all inclusive resort is on your bucket list."
