Catch the water ski show to remember at Lake J

Written by 

Jon boats and canoes are a common sight on the water at Lake Junaluska. But a water ski team stacked three people high?  

Yes, and it will be quite the show — two, in fact — when the Carolina Show Ski Team performs at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Friday, July 5, at Lake Junaluska. The best viewing for the free show will be from the Rose Walk.

The team is comprised of 30 to 40 skiers ranging in age from 4 to 60 who perform stunts individually as well as with multiple members on the same line. Spectators at the Lake Junaluska performance can expect to see barefoot skiing at 40 miles per hour, synchronized ballet skiing and swivel skiing, where the bindings of the skis turn 360 degrees. 

It is one of many special events and festivities being held at Lake Junaluska this week in honor of its 100th anniversary.
