I did not realize it, but this year was the first for Sandpoint to have ski joring at its Winter Carnival January 15-16, 2011. From the sounds of it, it went well!
Matt Smart of Mountain Horse Adventures, who acted as event organizer, assisted me with my research for my post Keep Ski Joring Alive! About Sandpoint's 2011 Winter Carnival, Smart said, "The general vibe from the crowd was, it was much more exciting then they imagined. And many said they'll compete next year." That sounds like a good report!
Welcome to the sport of Ski Joring Sandpoint!
I hope 2012 will be bigger and better!
