About the Pro-Am

The Hilltop ProAm has truly become a favorite tournament for both the professional and amateur skiers.  Rain or shine competitors from around the globe come to ski at one of the most beautiful sites in the world.
The ProAm promotes family by waiving the entry fee for the junior skiers which allows skiers of all ages to not only compete but also watch the pros up close, meet and talk shop.  It is so fun to see the relationships which have developed over the years with everyone cheering each other on regardless of ability or age. It reminds us what a strong waterskiing community we have and how fun it is to be young and get a PB every weekend!

      Bowie is visualizing his next set in the hot tub while prepping for the ProAm. Meanwhile Lisa and Adam are obviously just a distraction to his training. #hilltoplake #hilltopproam #waterski ...

      Who’s coming to the 2022 Syndicate Hilltop ProAm?!?! Every year this event gets more and more exciting! From record northwest heat in 2020 to a crazy 2021 cold and rainy tournament. We are 80% sure the weather will be something in the middle of those two for ‘22, but we’re 100% sure you’ll have fun regardless of the weather! ...

      Skiing may still be on hold, but last weeks snow sure was cool to have around!
