Hairband dude, Yes I am a member there and agree with you (wink wink) The place is so crowded all the time. Any of you who are thinking of joining, please dont.
And now the skinny on the lake. It is butter from 6-10am on the weekends. I have gone out every saturday from 6:30 to 10am for the last 3 months and we have been the only ski boat on the lake during that time. Every once in a while there will be another boat during that time. Most of the boats on the weekend come out at about 11am. During the week , most of the time you will be the only boat out there. The wind does pick up a little at about 3pm to 6pm and then it dies back down. But most of the time it is butter.
But everyone please dont buy a membership its not worth it. Please keep going to Perris and Smell-some-more and San V.
Warning to those who are thinking of buying. And this is not a joke. The water level is super low at Vail and it will keep going down for a while. In about 1 month you will not be able to launch your boat because the launch ramp will be completely out of the water and it is so shallow around the ramp right now that you pretty much have to paddle out in to the channel and back in to launch and retrieve your boat. If you go on a tour make sure you ask about the water level and what they are going to do about it. I forsee some lawsuits being filed against them for not keeping a water level high enough to let people get their boats in and out of the water.
For a good picture of the West bay at Vail Lake look at my profile. That is a picture taken 2 months ago from the beach in the west bay.
Good luck to you all
