Winter Balls

We take them out, connect a portion of swim noodle, and adjust the line so that the noodle is completely submerged a few inches below the surface. When the ice is out, we reach down about a foot to 18" and retrieve the noodle, adjust the line upward a bit, and reconnect the buoy.


We have individual anchors also.


The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

In the fall, we swap out our good buoys with older ones, so in the spring we are ready to ski without diving in cold water to install buoys. Once it warms up, we swap the old balls with freshly painted bubble buoys.


Our lake is small with no current so ice/wind damage is not an issue.
