    Very cool find Mateo!! I think I have seen skiing on Google Earth before I just do not remember which site. The link was not working for some reason so I took some screen shots

    I've been cataloguing all the different ski lakes on google earth for my own amusement. I typically just scan the areas I think may have some until I find 'em. I'm still looking for Eric Lee's lake. If'n anyone out there has the inclination, I'd appreciate addresses or coordinates of your local ski pond. JP :)

  • jipster43jipster43 Posts: 1,374 Crazy Baller
    Mecca? How appropriate! Found 'em. Thanks! JP :)

    Scoke,


    If there is a way the I can help with up dates let me know. Is easy for me to create a web form or something like that. I will find a good place to link the file next week so people can find it.

    I am not quite sure how to link tho the right location but on our lake when using the Google Maps satellite view you can see a boat pulling a skier at the end of the course.

    Hopefully these work for my lakes. The first one is the shrimp farm lakes (I normally ski at the one on the left). The second one is the Mecca site which we are developing into a ski club or homesites.


    Anyone interested in buying/partnering?

    Ok guys, thanks for all the feedback and locations. I have updated quite a few places and the file is now growing larger. I didn't do a count but it's amazing how many global sites are in it.

    i've emailed the file to the website ruler so it should be online sometime in the near future.

    if anyone has more site, feel free to email me directly or whisper me and i'll update etc.

    thanks.

    This is Sunset Ski Ranch Oasis in Mecca, CA. not far from Palm Springs, CA. In the middle of the picture, our lakes are horizontal, East/West. Top one is a rental lake, lower is a member lake. One of Eric Lee's places is lower right and a abandoned lake at Adohr Farms is lower left (with turn islands)

    File updated with a few new ones. Latest file is 15.8 version with a big Australia update.

    Please cruise the file around the country before you scour your states/areas as quite a few places are in the master file.

    Thanks and keep the new ones coming!
  • animalanimal Posts: 87 Baller
    The version I am being sent to from the home page is version 15.0. How can I get to the 15.8 version? Many thanks.
  • scokescoke Posts: 617
    15.0 is dated yesterday.

    15.8 is dated today as a slew of sites were emailed to me and I updated the Master file. Later this week I was going to email it to JTH for replacing to the current.

    Feel free to email me if you'd like the latest emailed to you.
