Event Description:
Gates & Wakes presented by Superior Boat & Repair returns to the West Shore this April as the ultimate test of your skiing skills. In this unique race, participants first put their snow-skiing skills to the test while racing gates at Homewood Mountain Resort. After two runs, the competition regroups at lake level for the latter water-skiing segment of the competition. From the harbor at Homewood High & Dry Marina (directly across the street from Homewood’s North Base area) participants will take turns executing waterski turns behind Superior Boat's Ski Nautique.

A proper water ski run will help your score while a fall in the water will hurt it! Based on the best on-mountain score, we’ll determine who is truly the best all-around skier for the day.
