Skijoring thread

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skijoring
Anybody ever do this? I’m fascinated by the idea, especially the equestrian version. Can’t imagine where I would be able try it out though

Re: Skijoring thread

How about a place where there's a lot of dope?

Those are the places where I’ve seen people doing it. I think I need something closer to home

Do you have a willing dog? If so, all you need is the harness, rope and skis on your feet. Here is a happy Hinterlandian skijorer TD and I met one day:

No snow, no problem, take up bikejoring. A guy I know has a special bike-like scooter thing just for this purpose:

Re: Skijoring thread

That’s a good idea SBR but the only dog I have available is a fat old lab that can barely walk to the back of the yard to shit

Well, your lab needs some company and you need a skijor dog project. Check this out, these dogs all need a home and they fly them into to New Jersey on a regular basis:

Re: Skijoring thread

the Lab is an in law, not mine directly. I would love to adopt but the current life situation doesn’t really allow for it. That looks like a great organization though

Re: Skijoring thread

If you don't really have the time and space for a dog, I don't think a horse would be the next best alternative ;)

Perhaps you can get the Camper to pull you around on his sled?


FWIW I've seen people with the dogs and it looks like a lot of fun.  I wish I could find a way to have a team pull my fat ass up hills so I could make sweet pow turns back down.

Re: Skijoring thread

Yeah, I’m more looking for a dude ranch or a ski resort where I could just go and try it out. I guess it ain’t happening in NY. A tow behind a sled would be great too
