I will be installing a new course in January through the ice in front of our house. There are many factors that limit the location and orientation - nothing I can do about it.
This lake is a circus of boats and personal water craft in the afternoon, so this course will be submerged except when we are using it. Anybody have any idea what time in the morning we can ski ?
I remember a couple tournaments where the course was running East-West. In mid-summer, slalom couldn't be run until later in the morning because of the sun. Sometimes they would start at 7:30 then have to quit for a while until the sun was high enough to not create bad glare off the water. It was 40 years ago so my memory isn't too fresh on the details.
The image shows where the sun will be a 9:45 am on July 1
