With the support of the Carbon County Visitors Council and local sponsors we have raised $6,000 to be used as money added participant prizes. Winnings will be split between rider and skier! The winning teams will receive an envelope with two checks (proceeds split 50/50), one made out to the Skier, the other made out to the rider. All racer registration fees and money added will be paid back to competitors. We reserve the right to change payouts as event finances dictate.
PARTICIPATION WILL BE HONORED ON A PRIORITY BASIS - REGISTER FIRST, RESERVE FIRST. ENTRY FEES WILL BE DUE AT SIGN-IN ON FRIDAY.
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. Our hope is to run a crossover track this year with multiple features, but as always we will work with what mother nature gives us. Snow Update!
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.
