I just came back from Lake Annecy. It's one of the most beautiful spots in the world. Waterskiing and wakeboarding are very popular on Lake Annecy; I also saw wakesurfing.

It's a mechanical translation and thus not perfect, but good enough...
Lake Annecy is a fragile lake. At one point most of the "quality" fish had been killed off and great efforts were made to clean up the lake and bring the fish back.
I believe jetskis are banned from the lake already.
