Lake Tahoe is one of the best water skiing destinations in the world. The lake is huge and uncrowded. You can ski in a protected bay, or out in the open, with little worry of getting into an accident with another boat. The best time to water ski is before 2:00 pm when you will frequently find the water like glass. If you do not ski yourself, it is fun to observe others. Not only will you see skis, you will also see just about every other thrill-giving toy imaginable. Try wake boards, tubes, giant bananas etc. Rev up and hold on for the ride of your life.
