Club 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!

The 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 location.

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.

The 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 cabins.

The Club will also perform mini-shows or demonstrations at special request.
