Next Monday I become a resident of Texas!!!! I will be househunting and all that entails and getting my family down with me as soon as I can find a place for them to call home.

If anyone here knows of world class slalom lakes that need new members near the Keller area, please pass along to me because I'll be lakeless for the first time in like 16years.( I know everyone feels real bad for me-lol)

Moving from Brighton to Keller, Texas will be the best thing you can do for your ski season. We moved to the Keller area from Littleton 20 months ago and it is great. We gave up skiing years ago when we discovered wakeboarding but there are hundreds of places to find good water unlike Colorado.

We're really looking forward to it! Last weekend my son was swimming until the last minute before hoping the plane back. When we got off the plane we about froze!

Any suggestions on where to keep a boat? I'm taking the boat with me now before the rocks get all over the road.

wgwollet- When it comes to boating and water sports Colorado is the driest state. The only public water I was able to find that was not crowded and usable for any watersport was a seven hour drive from the Denver area. SkiSix@38 belonged to a private lake which is the only way to get skiable water any closer.
SkiSix@38 - Storage for a boat in the Keller area is readily available. I have an indoor 30’x40’ storage building I rent for $325/month. There are several large storage facility off of Hwy 377 and they are building a new one at Golden Triangle and I-35W. Again compared to Colorado boat storage is a dream here.

I have several members who ski at other sites too. I put out a call to find information out for you!

wow, memberships at ski haven are expensive! $2200 a year plus $25 for each set. and a $200 fuel surcharge... i'm assuming that includes use of the club boat but thats expensive.

looks like memberships are sold out anyway.

Oh well. And that is expensive. For a bit of a drive, you can do much better moneywise IMO.

If your are willing to drive about an hour OR SO each way contact George and inquire about Princeton Lakes.

Wow Greg that's quite a move! Good luck down there in Texas! I was hoping to ski with you more in CO when I'm out there as last time was great even if it was cold... Maybe I'll catch you the next time you're up here if the Bu guys do their usual spring clinic. Is that a change in AWSA region or do you have the same competition?

I don't pay for storage right now and I will avoid paying $325 in the future.

Ski36short-I hop ewe get the chance to ski together again too. Yes, that's a region change from the West to South Central...

Thanks all for the responses, keep 'em coming with new info please!

I think this is the large place I told you about on the phone.

The house I told you about is on Amhurst Court in North Richland Hills.

You will love North Texas. If you are use to a long drive you will have a HUGE choice of places to ski. Within 4 hours of Keller there are a ton of lakes, rivers and private ski lakes.
