What Is Ski Joring?
Leadville Ski Joring is an action-packed sport 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 certain parts of the course. It’s a thrilling event!
