Skijoring, or more literally, "ski driving," has been a part of Jackson for over 75 years. Originally, competitors raced side-by-side, holding on to lengths of rope, their horses pulling them down the main streets of town.  Today, according to Skijoring Inernational, "equine skijoring is a highly specialized competitive sport, where horses accelerate to over 40 mph in just three strides covering a straight track roughly 900' in length. Skiers must navigate a series of jumps and gates and capture rings while being pulled by a 30' rope at speeds up to 60 mph as they accelerate."  This event is not to be missed!
