Ski Joring | Big Sky, Montana

 

Last weekend I met a friend in Big Sky to watch ski joring. What is ski joring? It is skiing (or snowboarding) while being pulled by a dog, motor vehicle, or in the case, a horse. And if you are wondering - no I did not participate. You first need to have a horse (or know someone that has a horse) and secondly it's actually quite dangerous and hard. Yes I ski but you would have to train for this. I am only mentioning this because a bunch of people asked if I participated... it's not really something you just "do".

The event was held at the 320 Guest Ranch which I linked below. It was lightly snowing throughout the day with the sun sometimes peeking through which made for a beautiful day.

I liked snapping pictures of the jumps and falls. The juniors were actually really good - the slowed down for it and more people finished.

Willie's Distillery from Ennis, Montana was there along with a DJ, drink booth, and Totally Tasty Food Truck and Catering. I didn't eat but my friend's had Pork Brat and loved it.

There was a cute half-time show where both kids and adults raced with inflatable horses. The adults were kind of lame and jogged but the kids ran and jumped in the snow. It was cute.
