Saturday morning kicks off with a delicious pancake breakfast at Our Lady of the Peace Catholic Church starting at 7:30am. You donít have to be Catholic, but you do need an appetite! Donations for the breakfast will be accepted.
Ski-joring kicks off at about 9am on Saturday at the Field west of JAKís Salon. The course will be longer this year, with roller jumps and gates. We have added a family/youth division, so children under 15 years of age can team up with a parent, sibling, or friend. Those over 15 years of age must enter an adult division. After the match team divisions, and depending on time, weather, and course conditions, we will run a draw Jackpot. You can enter as an individual skier or rider, be matched with a partner and run once. It will be a great opportunity to give ski-joring a try! This year we have a $4000 added pot for prizes! We hope to run a Calcutta after the first runs, but that is to be determined. Contestants should park on the street just west of JAKS, Spectators enter from Garrision Ave. east of WYDOT. Spectators are $10/a car. Food and beverages will be available onsite.
Starting at 1pm the Pinedale Snow Explorers and Altitude off-road will be taking sign-ups for the Snowmobile speeds runs on Fremont Lake. This will be a casual event, so show up whenever and run.
