Towed Water Sports
Water skiing and similar towed water sports are very popular in in Colorado. By remembering a few simple tips, lakes and reservoirs will remain safe and enjoyable.
The following rules and tips apply to people towed on water skis, aquaplanes, inner tubes or any similar devices.
In any designated ski area, travel is counter clockwise. There is often a center line of ski buoys for guidance.
It takes three to ski! An observer is required to be on board when a person is skiing. The observer is a vital communication link between the skier and the driver.
An orange or red flag (minimum 12-inch square) must be used to signal when a skier goes down. The flag must remain up until both the skier and equipment are retrieved.
With the exception of designated ski take-off or landing areas, water-skiing and similar activities may not occur within 150 feet of any harbor, swimming beach, mooring area or any location that is posted as closed to water skiing.
Water skiing is prohibited between sunset to sunrise.
