February 17 - February 18

Extreme Ski Joring

Join us February 17 & 18 for Wood River Extreme Skijoring!

Produced by the Wood Extreme Ski Joring Association (WRESJA), the event features cowboys with their fast horses racing with brave skiers and snowboarders and promises a weekend of fast-action fun that the whole family will enjoy. Ski Joring is a winter sport in which a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog or a motor vehicle. It is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring, meaning “ski driving”. In the Wood River Valley horses are used.

The WRESJA races will take place at 81 Browning Lane in Bellevue on Saturday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18, starting at 12noon each day.  There is an admission fee of $10 per spectator, with children 12 and under free, and a portion of the fees with be donated to the Wood River High School Rodeo Team. Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs but dogs are not allowed. This family-friendly weekend event will also feature concessions at the races, a raffle to support a local area non-profit and evening events that include a team auction on Saturday night, 6:30 p.m. at Mahoney’s Bar & Grill in Bellevue and awards party on Sunday night, 5:30 p.m. at 7 Fuego restaurant in Gannett.
