Skijor USA National Finals

February 29 - March 1, 2020

Have you ever heard of Skijoring before? For many people, this is an unfamiliar term, but trust us when we say you will DEFINITELY want to mark your calendars for this event!

Skijoring is a competition where a horse and rider pulls a skier through a course that has gates, jumps, and rings. Skiers are timed through the course, and scores are based on how many gates or jumps were missed, and by missing or dropping the baton or any of the rings. The event is every bit as exciting as it sounds, but the best news of all is the 2020 Skijor USA National Finals will be held right here in West Yellowstone this year!

Join us on February 29 and March 1 for this thrilling spectator sport that's unlike anything you have ever seen!

For more information (and some incredible photos!) please visit the official Skijor International website.
