December Skiing Fun in Minnesota!

I know a few of you get out in the sub freezing temps, and here in Minnesota, we embrace it, too! Gull Lake, MN 12/1/2017

I think this is a 205V hull?


and from our friends at Nisswa Marine

A few years go I personally drove for a friend who went footin', here in the Black Hills on December 12, just 13 shopping days before Christmas.

A month later we were ice skating on the same lake.

sold my old Prostar last spring to a couple guys on April 1st. Water temp 38deg Air temp about 40.
This was exactly 1 week after ice out. After a quick ice burg check and getting the boat warmed up, They decide that the dry suit was in order and jumped in....
I am sure we where the first boat to ski in 17 in Houghton lake. Fast forward to the end of October and one last sunny day and I hoped in the wet suit and ripped a good set for I am sure was the last ride of the year!
Have to love being alone on the lake!
