New England Skiing

Post by dennis meissne » Fri, 09 Jun 2000 04:00:00


I know this sport is primarily a warm weather sport except for the minority
who enjoy skiing year round (this includes me in Oregon)    but ...  was
wondering if there is anything in the New England area like a ski school
where one can ski.

I will be making several trips out there during the next 2-3 months and
would like to be able go for a pull or two during a day off.  I will be
located in Boston but usually like to go to NH or Maine during the weekend.
Of course I will make an exception to get to a place to ski.

Thanks in Advance

Dennis, Southern Maine has all sorts of wonderful small lakes. Because the air
and water temperature seems to be in balance through the summer the early
morning water is flat calm. Plus, being up north the sun rises at 5am and you
can easily ski by 5:15am.

We ski on Long Lake in Bridgton, Maine through the summer. 11 miles long - 3/4
mile wide. Normally each ski boat takes a 2 mile stretch to themselves - the
next boat takes the next 2 miles, etc. Therefore, we do not create wakes for
each other. There are lots of other lakes like this one around in Maine.

Hey Dennis.

Having grown up in New England, lakes are plentiful.  But Ski Schools are
few.  Unless you find someone that will take you skiing personally, you might
not get your feet wet.  I don't know how much time you have in the area, but
we offer pulls and instruction here, about 3.5 hours west of Boston, in the
Adirondacks of New York State.  As an alternative, I could get you some
free-skiing in Lebanon, NH, about 2 hrs northwest of Boston, but they don't
have the course set up anymore.  Or, If you want to explore the beauty of
Vermont, just under 4 hours northwest of Boston is Middlebury, Vermont, with a
nice lake and course if you get up early enough. :)

Good luck,
Peter. :)

Dennis,

I ski regularily during the week in the early morning close to Boston
(Methuen) and on the weekends about a 2 hour drive from Boston.

Get in touch if you want to hook up

Andy, have not seen or heard from you in a while. We have a new Sport
Nautique on order with tower, tanks, cruise and other things on it. It
may be in this week (down in NC) and are planning on heading to Maine for
the week of July 4th. I hope your sking has been good and the water flat.
