It's all relative! (the Fun part!) There's a few Guys on another site that ski yr. round (as long as the ice does'nt stop them) and their water is atleast Low 40's most of the winter! They dont even slow down! Me and my ski partner wait for atleast 65 deg. F!big_smile Of course, I'm from so. Cal. and he's from Florida!cool

you're not skiing in Detroit dude...   Go north towards Pontiac & the Fenton/Waterford area  1/2-3/4 hr, lots of lakes, ski boats and skiers. 

http://mwsa.org/2009/

check in with Skiers Pier Marina (Waterford) and Silver Spray sports (Fenton).  Malibu & Nautique dealers respectively they might be able to hook you up.

Re: Got Weather? Snow?

I have talked to a ton of people. They all seem to be ending in dead ends. It also seems like the dead end comes right after they learn that Im a 22 year old in college. Oh well I will figure something out. I am moving to the Pontiac area in June and I am actually in Southfield right now so I am close to all of those lakes. Something will work out.

I know I am not losing hope and I am still trying to stay in contact with the few guys that I have been with. I also just plan on taking my friends pontoon boat out and parking it in the slalom course on his lake. Ill be holding a cardboard sign that says boatless slalom skiing looking for a pull, will bring gas. With all of my gear on. smile

Re: Got Weather? Snow?

MORE RECORDS FALL!

Nashville area is still carrying on with the same spirit from which this thread was started. Rain fall totals for Sat. & Sun. (alone) set the new highest rain fall for the entire Month of May ever recorded. The official #1 and #2 single day totals for Nashville proper are now set by Sun. #1 w/7"+ and Sat. #2 w/6.5"+ with some areas recieving over 16"... Some rivers have or will crest today @ 12 ft.+ above previous flood Records. The Cumberland river will crest today @ about 12 FT. above flood level...

50+ mi. of I-40 is shut down with countless east bound motorist's still stranded after 20+ hrs. The death toll is unconfirmed @ 9 . One Hospital reported flooding of the 1st two floors. Opryland Hotel evacuated some 5000 guests to local school gyms. Countless water rescues have been made with many residents still land locked and trapped in their own neighborhoods.

I have been watching a very interesting trend or weather phenomenon here and across the country (even the world) for the last 5 yrs. or so. Very uncharacteristic weather patterns for many of us. Mid TN. is now considered the "New Tornado alley" with more death and destruction  in the last few yrs. then the combined totals for some of the other traditional "Alley" states...

Our course will surely be unskiable for 1 wk.? 2 wks.??sad

Re: Got Weather? Snow?

Our above noted 2 day rain total is 28% of our ave. yearly and is equivalent to the combined ave. rain totals for all of May, June and July!

Sadly, the death toll is rising and is now confirmed @ 18.sad

Down town Nashville has much flooding now do to the over flowing Cumberland river. The Titans field had water covering it 4-6ft. deep and into the 2nd row of seating. As well as, the locker rms, meeting, equip, mechanical rm's, etc... the same can be said for the Predators Hockey area. One building reported 35 FT. of water in the Lower levels... Opryland Hotel is completely flooded as is the Opry Mills Mall and everything else in the surruoding area...

Our area of Old Hickory Lake, where the course is, looks like a War Zone.
