RADAR Lake - Dream Day

Our family successfully bid on a water-ski dream day at with team Radar at a recent charity auction. The package included beginning our day at the Radar Warehouse, picking out a new ski and closed with an afternoon on Radar lake with the famed Eddie Roberts. Since I have the newest ski in the family, the missus was the lucky recipient of her dream ski. Unbelievable day, awesome hosts and a great brand / company. Thank you so much team Radar for providing us Christmas in June!

The event was in support of Medical Teams International. I can not say enough about the important work this organization does. They are generally "first in," responding to global crisis with relief support, physicians and general medical care. We have been supporting Medical Teams international for many years and can attest to the amazing work helping people in great need around the world. http://www.medicalteams.org

Lucky you!

I had skiing on Radar Lake as one of my bucket list items when I get out that way, but I understand that they no longer offer ski sessions or "lessons".

Such a cool looking lake. I've always though it "sure must be a great lake!" Love the trees and low bank...

110 acres. View to east is off a high bluff with unobstructed views of the central Cascade mountains---from Baker to Rainier. View to the west provides a glimpse of downtown Seattle & Bellevue. Thanks to the trees, not another home in site. It is truly one of the most remarkable pieces of property I have ever been.

Amazing day...and the boots match the bathing suit

Now that you've been skiing on the 14v for a while, what's it like to go back to a proper ski boat?

Great question. Team RADAR is a Mastercraft shop. Their PS197 was in the shop for a blown head gasket so they had a Centurion on loan. Both my wife and I felt the Centurion shelf was harder and more abrupt (by a long shot) as compared to our x14v. We where shocked. I skied it at 15 and 35 off.

Grew up right down 232nd from the lake, lived there when they first built it. Lot's of history with that whole place.

Looks like a blast. I remember the old Pull tv show spending some time at Radar and it looked like an amazing place to ski and board.
