Skijoring comes our way via Montana…Big Sky Country's own exciting and unique Extreme Sport is here, with the most money, the largest field of competitors and for spectators, the biggest party on snow!

The World Ski Joring Championships are hallmarked by the largest cash purse on the entire skijoring race circuit, estimated at over $20,000 this year. There's a lot of money at stake and skiers & horsemen (and horsewomen) will all be racing for their share of it, in four separate classes, plus the Murdoch's Long Jump.

 Modern skijoring combines Whitefish's signature ski racing heritage with Big Sky Country's cowboy roots into a wild, fast-paced and entertaining spectator event.
