Hi. I'll might be at a conference in San Antonio late March. I'm looking for a reason to bring my ski. The Google can't seem to find me anything close by. Any suggestions?

    San Marcos River Ranch is about an hour north-east of San Antonio.

    Using the ski sites google earth file, I found a few placed nearish to San Antonio, but they all seem private.

    How do I go about getting some ski time? Of course, I will pay my way.

    There's Guadalupe Ski Plex, in New Braunsfels. Contact <a href="mailto:[email protected]"><font color="#0066cc">[email protected]</font></a> . He might can hook you up.

    Utopia River Ranch is in San Marcos. Trent Finlayson lives on site.  Marc Austin(MAD11 on here) can probably hook you up with his number or email.

    And then there's Aquaplex in Buda, where MAD11. I'm sure he'd give you a pull or two if he's not in Canada.

    Wasn't there a place just east of SA called Frameswitch?

    I was looking to ,ove there about 15 years ago and it was an undeveloped site that was used for wild boar hunting.

    Aquaplex up in Austin was the other spot I looked at.

    Frameswitch is east of Austin near Taylor. It's about an hour and a half from SA.

    That's great. I'll try and set something up when I confirm my conference.

    Thanks

    Shane,
    Is Guadalupe the private site I was thinking of? You had to buy a lot to ski there, but no houses were built.

    I'm an owner at Aquaplex (along with Mad11) and either he or I will pull you.  Send me your info at <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>.  I could also probably get you into San Marcos River Ranch.

    I'm Sure Ted or I can give you a ride when your there. Glad to do it. Schedules are hard to predict so give us some notice when it gets closer. SMMR is closer to San Antonio so if your crunched for time we can help set you up there instead.

    Shane, I'm done in Canada for awhile. Who knows where it will be next. In Cape Town right now with no ski. Seems windy this time of year anyway so I left the Vice at home. A little nervous. Darwin is staying at the house for nationals while I'm gone and the Vice isn't locked up. Way cooler than that 2 ball special he's riding. Hope it's there when I get back.

    Hi Mad11.
    </p>
    <p>
    There are some very nice sites around CapeTown.
    </p>
    <p>
    Can hook you up if you are interested.
    </p>

    Some of them are protected from the wind, but if the wind is blowning get a kite board setup and go to Blouberg/ Milneton.
