Canyon Lake History: North ski area viewing platform

Near the end of summer in 1983, sports enthusiasts welcomed two new improvements in the community: a new viewing platform at the north ski area and fencing around Gault Field.

The September 1983 edition of Canyon Lake Community News reported that a viewing platform was completed at the center of the north causeway facing the slalom course. The 20 ft. by 50 ft. structure was a joint project undertaken by the Canyon Lake POA and Ski Club. 

In addition to serving as a viewing spot, the platform at the north causeway serves as the location for the Ski Club’s annual Breakfast with Santa and the Wakeboard Club’s Learn to Ride events. Photo by Canyon Lake Insider.

Additional help came from the General Telephone Company, which volunteered to dig footings for the platform when the utility company was replacing underground cable in the area earlier that year.

Over the years, the viewing platform has served the community during ski and wakeboard tournaments, as well as for events such as the Ski Club’s Breakfast with Santa and the Wakeboard Club’s Learn to Ride Day.

Other improvements around that time included fencing installed at Gault Field to protect Longhorn Drive from homerun balls. The POA also contracted for irrigation for the extended area of Gault Field.
