Skowhegan Ski-Jor

Hosted by Somerset SnowFest, Skijor Skowhegan will be hosted at the Skowhegan State Fairgrounds. Skijor Skowhegan: Northeast Equestrian Skijoring Regionals, presented by Baxter Outdoors, is a team time-trial race where a horse and rider pull a snowboarder or alpine skier down a 1,000-foot track of gates and jumps. Skijor Skowhegan is Maine’s first and New England’s only equestrian skijoring race. Skijoring means “ski driving” in the Norwegian language and is a popular sport in the Scandinavian countries. Main Street Skowhegan is proud to bring the sport to Maine and New England. For more information, click HERE.
