de Skinautique (ski-noh-teek), is French for "Club of Waterskiing."
The Club performed it's first show in July of 1958, became an
official water ski club in 1959, and became a non-profit corporation in
1961. We just performed our 55th year on the water this past summer!|
first show was performed at the request of the Lake Metigoshe
Improvement Association (LMIA) for their annual meeting. Only a
few people attended the meeting, but there were several hundred on the
nearby hillside to observe the skiing demonstration. The LMIA
subsequently bought the property, commonly referred to as the
Skinautique Hill. The club holds practices and shows at this
Club de Skinautique performs 3 home shows annually.
They also travel to several away shows every year. The
traditional Fourth of July shows provide an opportunity for families to
gather at Lake Metigoshe to see the show and then the fireworks at dusk.
Club's home is located in the beautiful Turtle Mountains of North
Dakota on Lake Metigoshe. It is a natural lake sitting on the
United States-Canadian border and hosts approximately 850 homes and
The Club will also perform mini-shows or demonstrations at special request.
