What is Ski Joring....you ask?

First Team down the avenue is planned for High Noon!

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. And...first horse down the Avenue each day will be at about 1:30 pm.

Start planning for March 3rd and 4th in 2018!
