There is a lake that is the result of a sand and gravel operation along side I-77. Anyone here use that? I see there is a ski course set up and a dock there. I'm sure its private, but what a nice set up.:D

Right at 77 and 21 on the North side exit to 21? I see it every time going to Salt Fork. In my recollection I mostly remember seeing Nautiques on that lake.

There is actually a better one on the other side of the expressway before you hit the dover exit. Its harder to see because its hidden by a tree line next to the expressway

Looks like a nice one at the intersection of 11 & 165 near North Lima also.

I have seen these before, from the road... :(

There are a few in our area and 'yes' I would accept an invite from any one of them... :D:D

I am thinking that may be the one that one of the former owners of Ski Limited once owned or owns.

I almost sold a guy that skis on that lake a 197 back in 2005 at the show. I think at the time he had a Supra and was looking to upgrade.

Has anyone seen this one!?!? It's over in Minerva Ohio.
It looks like part of the house is built over the turnaround.
It has to be a ski lake because its on "slalom road" lol

That house and lake look fantastic.
Here is a view of the house looking at it from the east.

Edit: Looks like the lake might be on the small side. Looks to be just slightly over a 1000 feet between the islands.

These other two lakes are within 5 miles of me. The first is Lords Lake in Jackson Township which was built by Suarez (used to or might still ski) but they sold it off. The second is in Canal Fulton and have no idea who's it is....

I need to meet these peeps... :rolleyes:

The second lake is the Bootsaroosa. The lake is privately owned and from time to time they will have tournaments there but otherwise the owner and a few select individuals are the only ones who use it.

The boat you saw is owned by one of the local TT members/drivers and they get the new one each year. The boat stays at that location except when it is needed for a tournament somewhere.

I have skied both, one on the left is private club. One in the right used to be used by ski limited when I worked there 10 years ago.
