Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Watersports
What Is A Cable Park?
Fun family destination where everyone can learn to waterski, wakeboard and kneeboard
Similar to a T-bar at a ski hill, the electrically powered towing system runs in a continuous circuit, towing riders across a body of water and replacing the need for a boat.
The easiest and most affordable way to learn a new watersport, or for the experienced participant to progress their skills.
Powered by a small electric motor, the system is virtually silent,
producing roughly 55dB
Blending into normal - outdoor ambient noise levels.
Traditionally waterskiing and wakeboarding have been expensive sports to
participate in, but thanks to the innovative electrical design and low operating costs
of cable systems the entry point into the sport has been dramatically reduced. Cable
Wake Parks are by far the easiest and most affordable way to learn to waterski or
At its roots the facility will be focused on building community within the sport by encouraging new participants to get involved and by providing a facility that encourages people to get outside, try something new, and to have fun!
Cable Waterskiing and wakeboarding is an ideal seasonal crossover
activity for the Town of the Blue Mountains’ winter ski and snowboard
enthusiasts and a terrific augmentation to the area’s prominence as an eco-friendly
"Cable wakeboarding is the summer version of a ski hill, except it's hot and sunny, I think it will be great for the community!"

Still not sure what a Cable Park is exactly?Lucky for all of us our friends down at Westrock Wake Park in Rockford Illinois put together this amazing video showcasing their park and explaining it a bit further! www.westrockwakepark.com
How can I help?We have a fantastic opportunity to bring a new facility to the Town of Blue Mountains that will benefit our community in so many ways. But we need your help to show that there is public support for this project. Tell your friends and family about it, and encourage them to support it too! Writing a letter to the Mayor, Councilors, and Staff at the town is a great way to show your support. Let them know how important this project is to you and how it will benefit our community. You can send your comments to Corrina Giles, CMO Town Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The more voices we have, the stronger our message will be. Let's show them how amazing our community is and how awesome it would be to have this facility in the Town of Blue Mountains.
Are cable parks loud?The cable systems operate using small electric motors. On each of the two "straight line" cables there is a 10kw electric motor (similar to a washing machine), and the "full size cable" (donut pond) uses a 30kw electric motor. The systems operate at 55dB at the base of each motor tower, and are virtually silent once you are 15-20ft away as the sound dicipates. To put that into perspective, a typical AC unit operates at between 50-75dB.
Is it difficult to learn?Cable systems are the easiest way to learn how to waterski or wakeboard, and our friendly and helpful coaches will be able to get you up on the water in no time. All ages fun for the whole family!
Are there other parks like this?There are over 300 Full Size Cable Parks in the world! Over 80 in Germany alone. Currently in Ontario there are numerous cable parks that feature Straightline Cables but none providing access to a Full Size Cable. Basically the difference being that on a Straightline Cable there can only be one rider at a time and on a Full Size Cable there can be up to 8 at a time, all evenly spaced along the running cable. This allows for more people to get out and enjoy time on the water for an even more cost effective price!
