Skiing enthusiasts and adventurous guests looking for a new thrill have something to look forward to during their next visit to Paws Up: skijoring. Skijoring, in which a skier is pulled by a horse or by dogs, is the newest winter wilderness adventure to be introduced at The Resort. It joins a stellar list of snowy activities such as dogsledding, ice skating and snowmobiling. Skijoring at Paws Up will have two trails: one course for training and the other to prepare for competitive skijoring. (A popular skijoring tournament is held yearly in nearby Whitefish, Montana.)
The word skijoring is derived from the Norwegian word for “ski driving.” At Paws Up, horses will be utilized as part of the offered skijoring, and The Resort will provide all the necessary supplies, including skis, poles, boots, gloves, helmets and goggles—and the horses, of course.
