Skim across a private lake just north of Sacramento, CA on a hot summer day. This is a fun way to cool off and meet new friends! Beginner to advanced skiers, seated or standing, enjoy one-on-one instruction from experienced adaptive water ski instructors and trained volunteers. No prior experience is necessary.

This program is appropriate for anyone with a physical, sensory, cognitive, or developmental disability to experience the absolute thrill of water skiing. We utilize a private lake within Wake Island Waterpark that has warm water and easy access.

Join us for the most fun you will have all summer!

The Achieve Tahoe Waterski program is made possible thanks to our partner, Wake Island Waterpark.
