Looks like ski season will start early this year, and I don't mean water ski season!

I am not ready for snowboarding yet...

I'd take a picture of the weather here, but you'd cry. Not a cloud in the sky. High of 89.

Bonedoc, it's lookin' pretty crummy down here, too.. No snow, but close - dropped to one degree overnight..

yep...my boat sleeps all wrapped up in the elecric blankets in the appropriate compartments to keep pumps and blocks from cracking....last night's low here was -3, though the temp where the boat is was only down to +4......the things we do to get a few end-season pulls.....still, better safe than sorry

I don't know what's worse... worring about a flood from a hurricane every weekend - or SNOW! I'm thinking of moving north. At least you'all don't get hurricanes!

Maybe I'll just join you in Texas! East Tx - Do you have room for 2?

Sizzler, I was there at the end of April, and you're right... it rained.. everyday.

I was there once for a solid week with > 30 degree C temps though.. taking a ride on the tube was smellier than the worst gym locker rooms I've ever been in...


Doug, you might think about building a guest house... Once I find that Uncle Sam outfit, I just might come down for a visit..

We didn't get the snow and it got quite cold but we still managed to get a ski in every day this week. Looks like the end is near but you never know, Oct. might be ok.

Not a member at Predator Bay. Just moved here and don't know where that is. :confused:
We have been catching early morning midweek skiing at Chesterslew while everone is at work so the water is good. Been out to Ghost a few times with some friends that have a course in there.

Predator Bay is a private club in south Calgary near Okotoks they have two private ski lakes. They supply the boat and driver fulltime. It's a great place to ski.

Bert,

I have not winterized the boat yet (Heated garage) as I have been hoping for some more turns.
Went to Ghost last night and had awesome conditions flat and warm and skied PB in the course twice, back this afternoon skied not as well but still had fun!!
Went Quading this morning in Waiparus (Mountains) then to the lake, Great day all around!!
