Spending the day with family and friends waterskiing on Shaver or Huntington Lakes is very popular with folks from as far away as the Central Coast. Let's fact it, on a hot summer's day, it's alot cooler above 5,000 feet. Give it a try!

Although you can drive up from the valley for the day, why not come up for the weekend or maybe spend your vacation in our great backyard.
