Bringing skijoring to the Gallatin Valley



 Modern skijoring combines Montana’s signature ski heritage with its cowboy roots into a wild, fast paced, spectacular event. Competitors race for cash and prizes based on the fastest combined times for the two day event as well as the fastest time each day. It is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring, meaning “ski driving”. Above all, skijoring is just another excuse to get outside during the winter in Montana and socialize.
