    For coaching you might try Terry Winter near Sacramento:

    Makayla Haw coaches (I believe) at Bel Aqua in Rio Linda, just outside of Sacramento. www.makaylahaw.com. WIlli Ellermeier is at Liquid Zone in Pleasant Grove, also near Sacramento. 707-227-0913. Ski Oasis in Carson City, NV is reportedly closed, but you could try calling. (775) 267-9738. I'll be in Incline Village myself May May 12 to 18. My youngest graduates from college!

    @mellig I'm in Chico. Not sure if that's on your way or not. I provide lessons on my lake just outside of town. Let me know if that might be something you are interested in.

    @lpskier - does your kid go to Sierra Nevada College? Racer? Congrats on the graduation!

    FYI - Ski Oasis is NOT closed.

    Berkeley Aquatic Park is a good place to try in the Bay Area. Not sure who the best contacts are these days.

    @Jimbrake Yes, SNC. He is a snowboarder and just recently became a competitive water skier on his college team (this was their first year). My daughter graduated from Auburn in December, so theoretically I'll have both kids off the payroll.

    @igkya Glad to hear it! I googled "carson city water ski" and this came up:

    "Ski Oasis Water Ski Lake - CLOSED Carson City, NV, 89706 ...
    www.yellowpages.com/carson-city.../ski-oasis-water-sk...
    Yellowpages.com"

    Better get Ma Bell to sort that out!

    @lpskier, Ski oasis is/was also running a wakeboard cable system, which I believe is closed. The ski club, while not as many members as in years past is open and we're skiing.
  • lpskierlpskier Posts: 2,698 Mega Baller
    @igkya Has your club been hosting the SNC ski team?

    @lpskier I don't believe so... what's SNC?

    Someone said there is a course on Fallen leaf lake,. that would be amazing (anyone one know if it's true)? For those who don't know Fallen leaf is a small ridge over from Emerald bay on Tahoe.

    @cragginshred Yes, I have seen a course on Fallen Leaf Lake many times, but I don't know if is there only seasonally or not. I have seen it there in September. It is on the north end of the lake. Perfectly clear water but quite chilly. Seems to always be glassy in the morning and then quite windy all afternoon.

    @MarcusBrown sounds like a good excuse to make a slight detour through Chico May 22 or 23 if you are available...

    We live in Truckee (about 20 miles from Incline) but also have a home at Bell Acqua. Our boys are in school in Truckee but would bring you to Bell Acqua as a guest of ours to ski if you have time. Let me know and I can get you connected with either me or the boys to ski.
