Ski Patriots Salute to America Show

The Lake Burton Ski Patriots perform on Sunday afternoon of the 4th of July weekend. The Patriots begin and end the show in Magness Cove by Billy Goat Island. You can view the estimated time schedule below. 

  • Since the Ski Patriots are an LBCA sponsored event, the GA DNR and Mastercraft Corporation were consulted to ensure the Ski Patriots are complying with all applicable laws and producing the smallest wake possible.
  • All boat drivers should maintain a courtesy no-wake policy when the Ski Patriots are in their area. 
  • The Ski Patriots always need skiers! Want to join in? Click here.
