The Ski Loons Water Ski Shows have been cancelled. 

The decision was made to cancel the events by the Brainerd Ski Loons and Ruttger’s based on the recommendation from the CDC to avoid events of 10 or more people, and for the health of our guests and employees!


Water Ski Show by the Ski Loons Water Ski Team

Tuesday, June 30 and Tuesday, August 4, 2020  |  7:30 p.m. | Bay Lake

Free and open to everyone!


Tricks, pyramids and other water-skiing acrobatics will return to Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge when the resort hosts the Brainerd Ski Loons Water Ski Show Team. The water ski show will take place in front of the resort and can be viewed from shore. It is free and open to everyone. The show is a throwback to days gone by at Ruttger’s where water ski shows were a big part of the resort experience through the 1970s. The resort staff – led by current Ruttger’s CEO Jack Ruttger, Sandy Ruttger, Julie Ruttger, Fred Bobich and others – put on a weekly show for resort guests.

The Ski Loons are a non-profit educational organization made up of area youth. The goal of the organization is to provide opportunities for personal development, teamwork, and community involvement through water sports, as well as instructing team members in the disciplines of show skiing while building character, confidence, and self-esteem.
