Course Skiing...I'm hooked!
 
Today was the first time I ever got a chance to try the slalom course. The conditions were terrible, we swam for 20 minutes to set it up, and all of my academics and studying about body position went out the window...but I have never had so much fun skiing!

I was able to make 1 buoy at 30mph @ 15 off, and ran a full pass of novice buoys at 30 @ 15 off twice in a row...and made the start and end gates for each pass. Not bad for a first time?

I love how it sets a "barometer" for your skiing and gives you something to strive for one ball at a time.

I'll stop waxing poetic now, just wanted to share my excitement for my newfound love :D

Bouys are addictives.Soon,you ll want more and more of them !!!

There are two MSC members I blame all the time for my buoy addiction... LOL

I too hope to be able to post a similar experience soon! I am a recreational skier and have always wanted to try a course. I am in SE Wisconsin and although we have a ton of lakes, there do not seem to be any courses around???

Here's a few of the wipeouts from last night at Metroplex Ski Club's Ski League:

Not a wipeout, but more of a determination to nail that 28' off pass....

You'll NEVER run 28off if your ski isn't on edge crossing that little wake!:D

Dislocated both shoulders and tore ligaments in both knees between '91-'94 I'm not returning to the course any time soon but it was a blast while it lasted

That last pic looks like me passing over the wake... what happened - fall of the edge?
