If hitting the water is part of your summer plans, we found the perfect Texas place for you to go relax and maybe even try something a little extreme. Texas Ski Ranch is a 70-acre water sports complex in New Braunfels that is great for hanging out at the beach or trying something a new. The ranch has everything from snowless snowboarding to water skiing to paintball.
Visitors of the ranch can visit their beach for free and they even have wifi so you can Insta while you lay out by the water. They have hammocks and chairs for you to borrow and you can go upstairs to the restaurant and grab a bite to eat or a drink to sip on.
Now if you want something a little daring to do, you can wakeboard or wake surf on the water. The park has ramps and obstacles that you can test out or you can take a lesson to build your way up to those intense tricks. An all day pass is $38 during the week and $40 during the weekend. You can also purchase an hour pass for $23 on weekdays and $25 on weekends. Buying a pass online can get you some extra discounts, too!
Summer is all about trying new experiences and to have a really unique one, you can snowboard at the ranch without snow. The ranch has hill replicas that you can have tons of fun on for only $27. Texas Ski Ranch is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
