Leadville Ski Joring and Crystal Carnival

March 2 - March 3

Come to Leadville for a weekend packed full of events! March 2-3, 2024

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 the baton or any of the rings. The competitors race for cash prizes, and teams are made up by a random 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 Saturday and Sunday in March.

First Team to start each day will be at High Noon!
