TROPHY LAKES TIMELIME
In 1985 skiers Kim Bryant and Alan Sanner built Trophy Lakes. They wanted to build it specifically for skiers. There are two lakes with two slalom courses and one jump. Lake 1 has the optimal lake design: 275 feet wide, 2,250 feet long, an average depth of 10 to 12 feet, as well as 10 to 1 slopes. Lake 2, although a little shorter than Lake 1, is an equally equipped lake for slalom or wakeboard.
SLALOM SKIING SCHOOL
Kim and Alan opened a water skiing school after Lake 1 was built. The school has brought ski and wake instructors with the ability to coach a variety of levels of skiing. With their coaching, Trophy Lakes produced many regional and national water skiing champions. In the mid-to-late nineties, coaches Doug and Drew Ross moved to Charleston and put Trophy Lakes on all water skiers’ “must-visit” list.
3 decades have passed since Trophy Lakes was originally constructed, and it is still offering water ski athletes with some of the best world-class facilities. Trophy Lakes has been an exclusive MasterCraft site since the beginning. Trophy Lakes’ ski and wake instructors come from around the world and offer a wide variety of teaching styles to cater to the needs of amateur to professional athletes.
