From the 18th January, the fun sport of Ski Joring will commence. Thursday 18th January and for the next three Thursdays from 9.30am - 12.30pm, you can join in and experience being pulled along on your skis by a horse! This activity is open to intermediate skiers from 8 years old. So if you are looking for a different way to ski around Les Gets - look no further.
Ski Joring originated in Norway and was included once at the Winter Olympics in St. Moritz as a demonstration event where it took place on a frozen lake. Sadly it has never appeared either as a demonstration or medalled event at the Olympics since with no obvious explanations as to why!
This experience must be booked in advance at the Tourist Office in the centre of Les Gets - Bookings need to be made at least 24 hours in advance. Sessions of 30 minutes are arranged between the times of 09:30am - 12:30pm for the next 3 Thursdays finishing on Thursday 1st February 2018.
