Skiing Around Pittsburgh

edited April 2012 in Mostly Slalom
I just accepted a job in the Pittsburgh area, so my family and I will be moving out there over the next couple of months. I have a young family (two girls 2 and 4), and would like to find a lake that would be good for the family and give me a chance to run the course. Anyone know of anything in and around the Pittsburgh area?

    There is a slalom course on the Allegheny River behind Nine Mile Island. The name of the ski club is called Golden Triangle Water Ski Club. There are also a number of private tournament ski lakes in PA and OH within about a 2 hour drive.

    I lived in the Pittsburgh area all my life until 2 yrs ago. There's 3-4 private sites and used to be 4-5 sites on public water. OH has many more private sites.

    Dave's Pond in Eire Pa. is one of the nicest ski lakes in the East. It would be a weekend site for you, but well the trip. Most of the club members are from Pburgh.

    If you are looking for a place to move and can be an hour or so north check out Lake Latonka. Just off of I-79. Shoot me an email if you have questions.

    I lived there for a few years, actually just north of The Pitt in Cranberry Twp. Just across the 80/OH boarder, in Lima maybe(?), there is a private place. Good people, but can't remember the owners name. If I find it I'll PM ya.

    There is also Big Rock Pond in Perryopolis which is south of Pittsburgh. I have never been there though.

    Big Rock is a nice, but short lake. The owner and other skiers are very nice.
