    The article said that ski courses are not allowed on public water. I remember skiing a course on Echo Lake 4 or 5 years ago with Greg. Does that still exist? I hope so as I was hoping to ski out there this summer.

    The Echo lake course was there last summer. Felt great to me skiing in water that was 30 feet deep compared to the 2 foot deep lake that I'm used to.

    They have been making them remove the course on Echo now. Was put up twice last year and removed by State within a week each time.

    That Echo Lake course was so awesome. Private lake experience with the wooded alpine lake beauty.

    I am so sad to hear this. That course was so cool. So if you put it in just for the day, it's ok?

    Sounds like most lots were reserved beforehand

    Glad I moved away now if the demise of public course access is no longer available in the flathead valley.
    Moose country dry now and has been for nearly 15 years. Echo no Bueno, as is the slew. Lake Blaine had a course and way down on the river in Polson there was a course.
    Florida is much warmer anyway, Hope to visit Montana in the near future will check in with Greg in Kalispell and Doug in Helena.
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.
