    will its nice to see I have a couple of people interested. however no one with a boat yet. I was hoping someone located in the area would be willing to provide tow. I am willing to pay.

    @vic OK, I only have 2 running boats. Both have ZO. My lake is glass whenever I'm looking at it without a driver. PM me.

    Skiing in the low desert in winter is a challenge. We do get some awesome weather - but it's warm for only an hour or two. In the heart of winter it's glass if there isn't a storm. If there's a storm, go snow skiing at Big Bear. Spring starts in March but the winter has less wind. It never rains but every weather disturbance anywhere turns into a windstorm in the desert. Honestly, San Diego winter skiing is more reliable but there will be hot air, warm water and glass in February at my lake. Guaranteed.

    It sucks when I don't have a driver on those day(s!)

    Sounds like we can work this out Eric I will be in the Palm Springs area from early January to Late March. I ski in Canada until November Water Temperature as low as 45 and air around 35 so the cool days in your area are not going to bother me that's why I have wetsuit. Would you send me email address so we can arrange this. Mine is [email protected]

    I will get in contact with eleeski in January when I am in the Palm Springs Area and see what skiing I can get. Found a place that rents a tow put it charges 250 for 2 hours {not by the set} so I would need 4 or 5 skiers to make it cost effective. I am not capable of skiing 5 sets in that time. I did ski last year at Cal. Great Lakes for 50 per set and the operator was very good. I will be going back to him again this year even if I find a good place closer to Palm Springs.
