Malibu or not I'd be up on it assuming a) I lworked nearby and b) I could eventually build there! Our club's Sportster pretty much sucks but you still can't beat the conditions...

True...^^^^but a MC would be better.

So, is anyone in the area of that ski lake looking at it?

I wonder which lake it is. My guess the muddy one.

I think I know the answer to this question already, but I want to hear it from an expert.

When viewing man made ski lakes on google maps or google earth, you notice most of them are situated due north/south.

Why?

No sun glare. East-west courses are really tough to ski for about 90 minutes each morning and night. Mid-day when the sun is downcourse, it's high enough that it's not a problem.

Our site is east-west. In the spring and fall sun glare is really bad for the 90 minutes, then you have about 30-45 minutes to ski before dark once the sun goes behind the trees. It is glass though!

Good point. I was thinking it had mor eto duwe with the wind usually coming from the west and it easier to protect the width of the lake with trees to keep the wind off the water..

Double post. Sorry. I should say it was an issue for the guy I spoke to who had skied some tournament down there. Beautiful place from the pictures I've seen. (see below for what I'm talking about generally)

I've heard the east/west is an issue at Lago Santa Fe. Off to Google Maps to confirm that it's east/west. Not first hand info on my part.

It would appear so.

Santa Fe on Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=Lago+Santa+Fe,+Texas&ll=29.419059,-95.108278&spn=0.00856,0.014462&t=h)

Yes, Santa Fe does appear to be east south.

I thought I had a better link, but it dosn't work either.

That's just not something you buy on Ebay; ESPECIALLY from an Ebay seller with 0 feedback who doesn't respond to emails.

I dont think anybody will buy it off ebay, but it may raise some interest.
A part ownership deal wiould take a lot of checking out. Who knows how much dept is associated with the property.
