This mix of skiing and equestrianism is perfect for nature lovers. Derived from the Norwegian word "Skikjøring" meaning ski driving, this sport has been practiced since as far back as 2500 BC.
Ski Joëring can be practiced by anyone who loves skiing and horses. Whether the horse be at a gentle stroll or at a thrilling gallop, this is a sport that both the young and old can enjoy.
Ski Joëring is practiced on trails far from the hustle and bustle of the ski pistes in the calm of nature. The horse wears a harness with rectangular flap for the skier to hold. The skier then is pulled by the strength of the horse giving a sensation similar to a drag lift but much more rewarding.
Skiers can enjoy beginner courses, simple promenades in the woods, fast paced adventures, nighttime tours and more. Click here for companies offering Ski Joering in the Chamonix Valley!
