A thread so we can share pics and tales of where we skied. Sharing the stoke.

This weekend, it was Father's Day weekend at Redfish Lake, Idaho. Water was still cold from snow runoff and the lake was pretty high. Rained hard Friday night, then turned nice for the remainder of the weekend. Who else got some in this weekend?

    I didn't get to ski but I did go out to a tournament to see friends on Sunday. It was great seeing my ski friends and watching some skiing. The tournament in Mass this weekend had the highest numbers in years for both jump/trick day on Saturday and slalom on Sunday.

    @customski , your link seems messed up somehow. At least I can't see your pic.

    @DaveLemons I have had a lab on my boat once....did I mention once? Major pain. Glad you got out skiing finally between the high water and wind and all!

    Saturday night, for shenannigans, my buddy and I were going to do a head to head comparison of his ancient Connelly Super Glass and my slightly less ancient Connelly Shortline. Rain was starting to push in hard but dads and kids wanted to ski. My 12 year old daughter rode the Super glass. My 10 year old son doesn't slalom yet so he rode both at the same the rain. Then dads rode them. Interesting to feel the evolution of ski design that was probably 35-40 years ago. Not my ski, but here is a picture of the same vintage and graphics. Any info on when this ski was made?

    Skied with Ky Ski Nuts in Paducah, Ky. Awesome site and awesome people!
    Life is good!

    @fu_man That's a 1978 Connelly Shortline.
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    @bigskieridaho , is that near Salem? Portland? I went to law school in Salem, long ago, but never skied on the Willamette. Watched sockeye swim up it though.

    @bigskieridaho You guys suck!! I'm still at work...
  • bigskieridahobigskieridaho Posts: 939 Crazy Baller
    @sunvalleylaw It is in West Linn and the launch is around 10th.

    @Ralph Lee yeah sucks you couldn't be there this time! No fun working that late!
  • sunvalleylawsunvalleylaw Posts: 1,259 Mega Baller
    Ok, keep 'em coming. My theory is that if more people see pics of more people having fun out on the water, we can spread some stoke around and more people will want to get out there.

    "Becky seems to be enjoying her skiing, @Skid !

    Not so sure about the other three ladies, though..."

    Not sure why you would say that? Bizarre comment as I didn't see you riding in the boat when I pulled my wife, both sets, nor when the other 2 women were skiing.

    Retract my earlier statement as I didn't see that Skid had posted that video, good stuff! I apologize. Skid, she and I had fun so that's what counts.

    Yes she had a few thrown fists and smiles after some passes. Great day on the water.

    My lake. <3

    Clear, clean fresh water. Love the smell and taste of it. Can't wait to be in it again tonight for our evening run. <img src="" alt=""/>

    Got a couple sets in after work Monday. Wife is getting pretty confident driving this year and is learning to back the trailer down the ramp and towed it home while I twiddled my thumbs.
