1. California Delta
The California Delta is an outdoor recreation treasure trove, providing opportunities in water skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, and several other outdoor sports. The water skiing here is great, given the many water ski schools, marinas and stores that sell water skis and boats. The best places to water ski at California Delta are Bishop Cut, Empire Cut, Mokelumne River, Snodgrass Slough and the Sacramento River.
2. Lake Tahoe
Located right where Nevada meets California, Lake Tahoe is another prime location for water sports. It is the largest alpine lake in all of North America, and the second deepest lake in the United States. The expansive lake provides plenty of open space for water skiing and is surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
3. Mission Bay
This private water ski club is located in Pleasant Grove, which is near Sacramento, California. Stillwater Ranch's two beautiful lakes are perfect water skiing locations for those looking to avoid huge crowds. Members and their guests can enjoy water skiing on well maintained slalom courses which are of tournament design.
