Deja Vu Part 2

Well, here we are again. Much like the end of last summer, the Mad-City Ski Team faces high water and flooding that put our season on temporary hiatus.

After the torrential rains of the weekend the lake level rose and the City of Madison decided that it was in the best interest of all parties involved to make Lake Monona, Mendota, Wingra and Waubesa slow-no-wake zones. Its frustrating for us because we are excited to be on the water and shape our show into what is shaping up to be one of our best ever.

However, mother nature and common sense are playing a part here in this situation, we don’t want any detrimental shore-line problems or any other issues that come along high water.

We have just completed our second annual Clean Lakes Festival which was also prematury ended due to weather, so, the Mad-City Ski Team is keenly aware of the hazards and fragile nature of our cities eco-system.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention our friends in the Wisconsin Dells, the Tommy Bartlett Ski Show, as many people may have heard, there was a catastrophic dam breach which caused Lake Delton to essentially be emptied, thus causing the end of the Tommy Bartlett Ski Show for the year, and who knows how long it will take to refill a lake.

Our thoughts go out to our show-ski family and hope that all is well with our friends to the north.

Fingers crossed that mother natures shines on us all soon!!
