Jackson Hole Ski Joring

SNOWPOCALYPSE CANCELLATION BALL! Saturday, February 18, 2017

Come dance
so a child may walk!

The horses would have run so a child may walk. Because of poor weather conditions the horses could not run in Skijoring or Cutters.
Help us raise money for the children!

Visit www.jhcutterraces.org to purchase tickets in advance at a discount or buy them at the door.

The 2017 Jackson Hole Skijoring event iwas cancelled, but was sponsored by The Jackson Hole Shrine Club, The Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board and The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.  Skijoring also had its origins over 75 years ago in Jackson Hole and the Western tradition continues today!  The event benefits The Shriner's Children's Hospitals.

WHAT IS SKIJORING?  

Skijoring is the unexpected and glorious clash of two counter cultures, extreme ski and rodeo.  Imagine a horse rearing up, then suddenly accelerating from zero to 40 in just three strides. Imagine a skier grasping a 30 foot hemp rope and being towed over a snow covered course, rounding gates landing 6-8 foot jumps.  Imagine the course lined with thousands of cheering spectators as the snow and ice fly.
