So this week I learned what Skijoring is. It's waterskiing except on snow. Oh, and you are being pulled along by a horse (or a dog, an ATV, even a monster truck). Now that's Colorado.

In all seriousness skijoring is a winter sport that goes back a long way. Skijoring behind reindeer was actually part of the Stockholm Nordic games of 1901. I think that would be incredibly cool to watch.
