Whoa Nelly! Wisdom Montana Is Getting Crazy With Skijoring
If you have never watched the sport of Skijoring in person, you owe it to yourself. It's so much fun and it's happening soon in Montana.
Can you think of anything more "Montana" than throwing on your skis, maybe a crazy costume, and having a horse pull you through the freezing air at Mach 5 speed? Me either. There is a little more to it than that, however.
Each event can vary differently. Some are strictly for time/speed, while others have obstacles like jumps, water hazards, ring grabs, and gates. The skiers can also be a part of a team competition or singles. Check out the video below to get a good idea of what we're talking about.
Now you're pumped, right? Located in the Big Hole Valley, just over the hill from Darby, In the small town of Wisdom, Montana. They throw a Winterfest like no other. And yes, they will have two days of crazy Skijoring! This event is going to be so awesome, and it's fun for the whole family.
The Wisdom Skijoring will kick off on Saturday, February 25th at noon, and again on Sunday at 11 am. Along with the action, there will be live music, dancing plenty of food, and even a beer garden. (It wouldn't really be a small-town Montana event without a beer garden, now would it?)
The event will take place by the Wisdom airport (yes, Wisdom has an airport) at 216 Country road, 1.5 miles south of Wisdom.
