Looking to water ski in Tahoe? Look no further!! SIX YEARS AGO, we brought our 5 young kids to Tahoe and they learned to ski with ease through Birkholm’s! We don’t have a big vacation budget, so the “splurge” here was the highlight of summer! You can be assured–they are not a fly-by-night company and they stay in business because they operate with the highest integrity. This time we brought 6 kids and ALL 8 of us got out there on skis–even our 3yo daughter, who took a “princess ride” with our instructor, Eric–priceless! Brendan and Eric were a great team–met us at a dock near our accommodations, on time, all equipment in the boat, patient and helpful to all (ages 3-45) and very good guys! They were excellent boat drivers and maneuvered in and out of the busy dock carefully and efficiently! (We did have to take turns w/so many in our group.) When the wind picked up and water was choppy, we switched to tubing.  Great times!! You could call around and try to assure yourself that you’ve found the cheapest price, or you can call Birkholm’s and know that you’ll have the best waterski experience available on Lake Tahoe! Mr. Birkholm, thanks for helping our big fam of 8 have another epic Tahoe waterski memory!
