Going to the Ozarks to visit Friends in Laurie, Mo. at the end of October. Will be on the West side of the Lakes. Trying to decide if I should take my ski or a Banjo....Anyone know of any courses up that way ???

    That's funny, you will enjoy your Banjo much more! I have never seen the ocean are rough as I have seen Lake of the Ozarks. It is a shame really, used to be a nice place to ski 35 years ago.

    Don't know about courses, but we skied every day up there for a week a few years ago. There are plenty of the fingers that are calm in the morning and evening. We were staying off one of the fingers around marker 10. At the time I had a Bayliner 195 and had to plow the road for the LXI if they wanted to venture out into the main channel during the middle of the day. The waves out there just get too big for a ski boat to handle on its own.

    Side note: Jim and Ricky McCormick grew up skiing on Lake of the Ozarks, as did my mother in law.
