Sunset Ski Ranch is now Valensin Ski Ranch



Has anyone been out there yet? Just saw that Sunset Ski Ranch outside of Sacramento has new owners but looks to be the same awesome lake and site. Now called Valensin Ski Ranch, https://valensinskiranch.com/. I loved it there, looks just as spectacular, will go back again this fall/winter and check it out. Looks like a few changes, Mastercraft boat now. And even more accommodation choices, the main house is now available to stay in, and the loft too. Apparently Paul Crawford will be coaching with Ryan Canepa and Ryan Nason doing some of the driving. I've been coached by Paul before, great coach, very insightful and down to earth. Glad that after Robby and Doug moved on it's still a premier waterski site and wasn't kept private or turned into something else.

    The 2 'accidental' lakes used to be known as Stillwater Ranch. I was a member there from '00 to '03; wow, lots of great people, great skiing and great times.

    Last I heard the longer lake was sold and converted to a cable park, but the other was still a membership only lake?

    @LakeOneSkier , I too was a member at Stillwater. Great place while it lasted. It is now Wake Island. They divided the big lake in two. One half is cable park. Other half has those inflatable obstacles, a zip line and paddle boards. Unfortunately the smaller lake is no longer used. I sometimes swing by, grab a beer and watch the riders crash!

    @LakeOneSkier however that picture does not have Stillwater in it. The first lake is Pleasant Oak, the two behind it , I have no clue what its its called. I met the owner once and he said he just wallies it up on them .

    @LoopSki ,

    Yep, you're right. I knew that was Pleasant Grove but just glanced at the two and assumed Stillwater. I hit that guy up once too, back in '99 before I found Stillwater. He had no interested in letting anyone ski there.

    My understanding is there is at least 25 slalom courses within an hour of Sacramento. That may be more than in the entire multi-state New England area. Time to move I’m thinking.

    @Shortenit years ago i counted up as many private sites I could find in CA, and it was just over 100.

    If it wasn’t for family in the NE I’d have been there long ago. 😀
