I've heard reports that at least at one time there were skiers on Drew lake or Kelly lake in Watsonville. Anybody know anybody who skis there??

    John Corvellio may still ski there. He did in the past.

    I saw a Dateline or 20/20 type episode about some brothers that grew up skiing on one of those. Can’t remember what the story was though.

    No lakes or courses in Salinas, Kelly Lake in Watsonville had a Slalom course several years ago, I haven't heard of anyone skiing there in many years.

    Crivello BTW. Google Earth imagery 9/27/21 - I see buoys. I would imagine you have to ski eaaarrrrly there to avoid the wind. Prevailing afternoon wind at that spot would make the Santa Clara Co. WSC pond look glassy.

    Close to good surf and plenty of great whites, too! And strawberries!

    Ok this is a boondoggle but a buddy of mine is telling me that there is or was a lake in Hollister. Anyone know anything. I assume it is not there.

    that lake was in Paicines, it hasn't been used for skiing in about 20 years.

    I don't know where Paicines is but I'm still unhappy about it
