Sandpoint and Leadville 2012

Recently I received an e-mail about the up coming and annual Leadville event. I checked the weather and snow depth. Leadville has about 20 inches today! Lets hope for more. Plan for March 3 & 4th. The 62nd annual Leadville Ski Joring and Crystal Carnival is on!
Just a quick note to let you know that Ski Joring in Leadville is a go!! We were skeptical, and waiting on snow, but it's finally here, and the City and County crews are all on with us to haul snow!!
We aslo will have the Calcutta back on the avenue, so bring your checkbooks and thick wallets to buy your team...and we are excited to have you all back in Leadville for the Grandaddy of Them All!
All events are sponsored by Leadville Elks Lodge #236, and Registration, Awards, and the Dance will all be there again. Get your rooms reserved, and if you need any help with that, let us know!
Thanks for coming, and we'll see you when you get here!!

And don't forget about Sandpoint Idaho ski joring either! It's their second year! February 18-19th. 
Last year event organizer Matt Smart of Mountain Horse Adventures, said: "The vibe from the crowd was much more exciting then we had imagined. Many of the spectators even said that they'll compete next year". If you can get there - Go!
