Come grab a beer from us at the Whitefish Ski Joring Championships!

Ski Joring ('skē-jȯr-iŋ) is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog (or dogs) or a motor vehicle. It is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring meaning ski driving.

Modern ski joring combines Whitefish's signature ski racing heritage with Big Sky Country's cowboy roots, into a wild, fast-paced, and entertaining spectator event. The World Ski Joring Championships have grown into a very large party that features spills and thrills, hot food, and of course - a GNBC beer garden! Come see us!

Admission is free for spectators. A nominal $5 parking fee per vehicle is charged for on-site parking, with proceeds going to the non-profit Human Therapy on Horseback and to support the Whitefish Winter Carnival.
