The website has been updated with plenty of new details on lodging, horse boarding, sponsorships, directions and charitable causes.

A representative from Veteran Barn Door Project is coming all the way
from Fort Myers, Florida to spread the word and raise funds for 
his amazing program which uses equine therapy to help 
veterans of war with PTSD and TBI's.

Mountain Valley Horse Rescue,
the only refuge for horses in Eagle and Routt Counties,
will also be a beneficiary of the Steamboat event.

Yes, Kremmling, Colorado is still on our calendar!
for February 2nd & 3rd

Race organizers and course builders are meeting with town representatives tomorrow to iron out the details of the event. 

It is the perfect complement to the Steamboat Springs race,
so plan for a double header,
Colorado and Wyoming riders and skiers.

A website and Facebook page will be up shortly.
 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ A HEARTFELT THANK YOU ~
Skijor USA is impressed and humbled by the degree of support
our races are getting from fellow organizers
and competitors, both current and past.

The Jackson event was a prime example of how when people have a common goal and give selflessly of each another, that great things can happen.

Thank you to the Town of Jackson
and the various departments that coordinated their efforts for us.

Thank you to members of
Saratoga Skijoring, Rockin' MT Arena, Pinedale Skijoring & Skijoring Utah
who put in long hours and braved the bitter wind and early morning cold.

Thank you to the Jackson Hole Shrine Club
whose members manned the entry gate, sold beer and worked on the track.

Thank you to the many individuals who came forward lending their professional services from veterinary to announcing to equipment operations.

Thank you also to
"The Jackson Boys"
Aaron Cisco, Pete Karns & Joe Knoebe
who worked into the dark wearing head lamps to set gates and take a few runs down the course behind a snowmobile
making sure the course was safe for all levels.

As a result, we recruited a new set of Wyoming competitors
and raised money for a VERY worthy cause,
The Shrine Hospitals for Children.

Now THIS is what SKIJORING is ALL about!
