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 are there for our special "Kings River
Weekends," Friday through
Tuesday. One trip per month in June, July, and August is the norm.
Anticipating low water levels and a shortened season, we are only planning two
trips in 2015 for now, in July and August. 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.
