What is Ski Joring....you ask?

Ski Joring is a competition where a horse and rider pull a skier at a fast pace through a course that has gates, jumps and rings. The skier is timed through the course, and penalties are assessed by missing gates or jumps, and by missing or dropping any of the rings. The competitors race for cash prizes, and teams are made up by a randon draw before the start.

The Leadville Ski Joring event has been going on in Leadville since 1949, and is one of the premier events of its kind in the country.

Ski Joring is always the first full weekend in March, and it is a good idea to book your room well in advance if you are planning on coming to either participate or spectate as the available rooms fill up fast.

Start planning for March 1st and 2nd in 2014!
