Hi everyone! I live on Long Lake in New Brighton and am looking for ski partners. I've got a nice 197 for a smooth ride.

Long Lake is just off 694 and Long Lake road in New Brighton for easy access. It has a North (hidden to most people) and South side and is usually great for weekday skiing. Nights and weekends usually aren't the best due to wakeboarders but they will often work to trade sets and the other side of the lake may be available.

I've also got a portable InstaSlalom course that needs to get put back into use.

I'm most interested in finding people who can go during the day, over lunch or in the morning. Of course, I'm always willing to find a way to ski if there is glass any other time of day.

I'm would also like to finding other skiers nearby with access to a course that I can ski on from time to time. I would be willing to help with expenses as needed for course maintenance as well.

What days of the week are you thinking about? I'm in Plymouth and could do mornings. And maybe somedays over the lunch (fridays)

MLD004, where do you ski?

Mainly at the cabin south of Alex. I wakeboard at least once a week out on Lake Sarah, but I would love to get in some more skiing especially in the mornings. I have my own course to, but the lake the boat is on is big and I'm mainly there on the weekends and it hasn't been worth setting up do to wind and boat traffic.

MLD004, Check your PM. :)

Starman and MLD004,

I sent both of you a PM with my phone number.

I look forward to talking with both of you. I think Friday (tomorrow) is looking like a great day with winds out of the South at less than 8 mph until a warm front passes which will make it a bit windier after 1 pm.
