In designing our course our main focus is to provide a safe venue for horses, riders, skiers and spectators. We will have a straight track approximately 700' in length. Our track designers work with what mother nature gives us, and typically includes 3 jumps, Leadville style rings, and multiple ski gates. The skier is offset to the right of the horse and rider. Horses run on a prepared dirt track. Horse track safety is our top priority and our organizations have been preparing dirt horse race surfaces for over 38 years. Snow Update!
Come on Mother Nature!
Thanks to our local supporters and ranchers we have onsite horse boarding at the race venue. All boarding facilities have water available, please bring your own feed. Boarding is at no extra cost for participants and reservations are made when registering for the event.
