SOUTH LAKE SKI RANCH
We go to South Lake Ski Ranch, a private water-ski lake in the
Bakersfield area, once a month from May through October. The lake has a
slalom course and mini-course, a wakeboard jump and a wakeboard rail. This is
great place to go for perfect water, all day long. Click on the
Calendar button to see all the dates.
We ski on the Kings River near Kingsburg (20 miles south of Fresno on
Hwy 99) in the summer. Normally we have three five-day trips, Friday through
Tuesday, during the summer. We ski at Riverland Resort. Some members
stay in RV's at the resort, others stay in motels in Kingsburg. On these
trips, you can come in on Friday or Saturday and ski the weekend, come in on
Sunday for the good weekday water on Monday and Tuesday, stay for all five days,
or whatever suits your schedule.
The area we ski in is adjacent to
California Highway 99. CalTrans is widening the highway between Goshen and
Kingsburg, and that includes the Kings River Bridge.
The river under the bridge has been closed to navigation for the last two years.
Caltrans' contractor appears to be on track to have the job finished this spring
and they are required to restore the river to its original natural condition.
We are monitoring progress and look forward to a navigable and skiable river
come June 2014.
