Leadville Ski Joring is an action-packed sport for skier, horses, and cowboys and cowgirls.
It’s where a horse and rider race down snow-packed Harrison Avenue in Leadville’s downtown, pulling a skier who’s holding onto a rope. As the horse gallops, the skier flies over jumps and spears rings set up along the course. It’s a thrilling event to watch or join!
But that’s not all! At the 2019 Leadville Ski Joring and Crystal Carnival Weekend, you can also join mountain bike and Nordic ski races, a paintball biathlon, and umpteen other kinds of winter fun!
