For those who like to mix a little rodeo into their winter sports, Leadville Ski Joring is the event meant for you. Skijoring is when a cowboy and horse duo pull a skier through obstacles at pulse-pounding speeds. Whether you want to watch from the stands or join in the competition, it’s bound to get your adrenaline pumping!
Held on the first full weekend of March, this year’s 76th annual Leadville Ski Joring will take place on Friday through Sunday, TBD 2024. On Saturday, kids can compete in this thrilling race. After the festivities, you can find live music and dance nearby at The Elks.
A popular event, if you’re coming from out of town, you’ll want to secure your room and board early as places tend to fill up quickly. Keep in mind that dogs aren’t allowed.
