If you can't find a small resort around there and want to take up wakeboarding Texas is the place to do it. You don't even need a boat, check and see if there are any cable parks near you. I've never been to one, but they look super fun. There is rails, kickers and boxes to hit, and it looks way easier then riding behind a boat.
Keep in mind though, wakeing is a different animal all together. I have a hard time with the trasition from wake to snow and back. I rode enough snow last season to build my muscle memory for it, and my wake technique sucked at the beginning of this summer. I've been riding wake alot longer then snow, and the first couple weekends out I felt akward and out of shape. I have yet to nail down a tantrum(base level invert) and I had them fiarly consistant last year, and my HS BS 3's are sketchy to say the least. I'm sure that I'll go through the same thing when the snow flies, who knows, I do feel more natural on a snowboard over all.
Riding wake will keep you in great shape though, it's very psyically demanding, more so then snow. I can take lap after lap, after lap at the resort for days on end, and I'm hardly even sore (unless I take a bad crash) After a weekend on the lake, I am beat up.
Like Wolf said, focus on what you need to have the life you want. I'm 41 and still shredding, you have plenty of time to play.
