I've skiied for over 9 years now... NEVER tried to ski a "course". Does anyone know if there is a course on Cedar Creek Lake in southeast Texas, or close to that area. Doug, I bet you might. I think it's time to give it a shot. I like to ski around 35... that seems a little hot for a run on a "course"... Thoughts/Comments? :D

There is a private lake in Kaufman called Dream Lake. If you want to come up to Princeton near Mckinney I could pull you. Lake Tyler has a ski course East Texas may be able to get you on. www.princetonlakespoa.com

That sounds pretty tempting! I'll birng my ski home this weekend. Do you live on the water out there? I live in Plano and think I know the area you are talking about. Is it off 380 on the right side as you are driving towards Greenville?

Tom, if you're ever this way, give me a shout. I'll pull you 'til you drop. My experience was that they needed to slow the boat down considerably to give me a realistic shot at the course.

Thanks Doug.... doesn't take too long before I drop. If I could get a daily run... I would be in a lot better shape... once a weekend or every other weekend. I'm still sore the next day (or two). I appreciate the offer... and might drop you a note. Have a great weekend... heading down to Cedar Creek for the weekend. :wavey:

No sweat. Don't know why I thought you were in Waco. Drop me a line any time. We skied through the end of November last year.

Let us know how it is to ski behind that machine! It sure is a beaut! Probably shouldn't post it though, remember what happened last time!

There is a course on Cedar Creek. My inlaws have a place near maybank after the third bridge. If you go up in that cove there is a course set up. There is also a ski school up there. I have never had much luck with cedar creek though. I don't know if it is when I go or if I just have had bad luck but I don't even ski when I go down there anymore b/c the water is so bad. Sorry, I am not much help on where this course is on the lake. I know how to drive near it on land but no idea how to get to it from the rest of the lake. Only 34,000 acres...
