Spectator Information 

Admission is free for spectators. We encourage the whole family to come out and enjoy the exhilarating sport of skijoring. There will be food, drinks, and alcoholic beverages for sale at the event.

Dogs MUST be leashed at all times while on the event premises. We expect both spectators and competitors to be realistic about how their dogs will handle a fast pace event with horses. If you have questions regarding how your dog will react, be a responsible owner and please leave them at home for the day. 


Calcutta

The Calcutta takes place on Saturday night after Day 1 of competition. Teams are auctioned off to raise money for the non-profit Eagle Mount. Spectators and participants essentially "buy" a team(s) based on the results posted from Day 1 in expectations of the team being a top three finisher for Day 2 results (qualifying times for the Calcutta will be based on the top three results from Day 2, not cumulative times from the weekend).  Once a team is bid on, the winning bidder can win back part of the Calcutta money based on how the team performs on Sunday. All money raised during the Calcutta is shared between Eagle Mount and the winning bidders for the top three fastest teams for each division on Sunday's performance.
