SOUTH LAKE SKI RANCH
We go to South Lake Ski Ranch, a private water-ski lake in the Bakersfield area, approximately once a month from May through October.  The lake has a slalom course and mini-course, a wakeboard jump and a wakeboard rails. This is great place to go for perfect water, all day long. Click on the Calendar button to see all the dates.  Note that the South Lake Ski Ranch is currently closed while they drill a new well.  

KINGS RIVER
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.  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.  

This year has been different.  The River has been experienced flood level releases from Pine Flat dam and re-opened for skiing in mid-July.  We have scheduled two new Thursday - Sunday trips: August 24-27 and September 21-24.
 

Chad Cotton created a remarkable video of the river at its highest using a drone.  Now that the water has receded and Riverland is drying out and restoring power, they are opening parts of the park.  You can see some images of the park taken on Sunday, July 16.
