Skijoring Utah, a world-class event featuring horse, rider, and skier (or boarder), is returning to Heber Valley on January 27th and 28th at a new location, the Wasatch County Events Center. Come watch these athletes compete as we merge Utah’s legendary ski heritage with its authentic cowboy roots.
Utah Skijoring is an action-packed competition where a horse and rider pull a skier or boarder as swift as possible through a tight course that includes gates, jumps, and rings. The Skijoring Utah event is a wild, fast-paced and spectacular event. Competitors race for buckles, cash, and prizes based on the fastest times. This two-day event is open to spectators. VIP and General Admission event spectator tickets are on sale for both days. The venue location will also feature food trucks, local vendors, demonstrations, and more.
