Air temp of 51, water of 50, it was a beautiful day @ the lake.  I feel sorry for all the skiers whose season has ended, so I thought I'd post pictures from time to time so that you can ski vicariously through me this Fall, Winter, and Spring.

    I saw Broho on the prelim tournament guide for 09, never heard of it before, maybe we will head up that way next summer.  Cool pic.

    Went to work today. Did not ski. Will not be skiing until April next year. I hate the close season.

    I'm swapping one ski for two.  We got 2 feet of fresh pow pow yesterday here in CO, and the mountain opens in a few weeks.

     We had to setup a shooting range after skiing. Seemed the right thing to do as our days are numbered due to the current political state.

    3-4 feet of snow at Alta/Snowbird the last few days!

    Snowbird is opening this Friday, we still plan on water skiing Saturday with the water in the low/mid 40s and air in the low 50s.

  • The Broho Tournament is tentatively Memorial Day weekend 2009, May 23rd/24th.  3 round Slalom.  Two normally grouped rounds, then the third will be the 34 mph gang in a head to head, everyone else in just another normal grouping.  Should be fun, Lee's also trying to get Greg Badal to do some coaching the Thursday/Friday prior if people are interested.  He'll be at Hilltop the weekend before, so if we can get skiers interested he said he'd extend his stay.  Keep you posted.

    We all should - because the factor that drive the price down - demand - affects us all!
  • But it sure is nice to fillup the 5 gallon cans @ $2.29 per gallon instead of the $4.+ we were paying this summer.

    My ski buddy and I are just members at the lake, not owners but we do ski our tails off! :) The owner is a skier (obviously).

     I was taking pics of our water level the same day. In the BOS photogallery there are quite a few pics I took.

    What's that floating in the water directly opposite the 1/6-ball?


  • AndreAndre Posts: 921 Crazy Baller
    wow! Very nice lake.

    Dimensions seems perfect too.How long?
  • scokescoke Posts: 617

    TW: that is a floating target. Shoot at it from the dock sometimes with 22 caliber rifles or pistols. When skiing, you never see it as it's opposite side.


    Andre', we are about 2050' long, runs North to South. Straight in from the south side and a large turn around island from the other end. about 250' wide through the course and depth ranging from 6' to 8' in the course. Skis very nice when water temp is 85-95. Right now water is 62-64 and still ski-able.

     We are dropping the water level 12" right now and plan on cutting the banks back. We are going to do the rollout-sandy banks, ala "Ski Ranch" in Covington, if things go according to plan anyway!

    When are you heading to Chili? You need to get the dry suit out to practice.

    Chile': looking at a couple differing weekends in the beginning of December. Also looking at going to Costa Rica for some sets.

     Still wearing hot tops. A:74, w:64. i need a divers hoodie when the air breaks below 70. i have a big head and all that cold air/water on my dome sucks.

     Friday/Saturday it's suppposed to be 74ish but Sunday looks to be SOL....

    Ice on the lake this morning when I left. Our balls are all in yet and they may stay if it stays cold. I last skied on 1st with 65 air and 50f water. That may have been the last. Deer hunting going on here also, so If I go, I need to get a Orange suit.

    Scoke that is one sick looking site.  Gun range and ski lake all in one.  I like it.
  • scokescoke Posts: 617

    What a thread hijack....

     We have been blessed by our owners generosity that's for sure.

    Your posts and Pics have helped me thru the winter, but I finally got up the nerve to put the boat in on saturday and give it a go. I have 2 drysuits, but the seals are wasted on both so I skied in a shorty. Water temp was 50 and the air temp was 75 down here at Canyon Lake. Believe it or not, it was bearable! Thanks for keeping me going this winter! I think ski season is officially here!!! Woo Hoo!!!

    richarddoane, my wire fox terrier is the dock starter at my lake. Only problem is that she's pretty "vocal" and sometimes likes to "taste" skis.
