Take your ranch skills to the slopes with our new event this season! The Ski Ranch Rodeo is a timed event on The Face for a three-person team. $30 entry fee per team.
Skier 1 - Roper
Skier 1 will ski out of the gate triggering the timer with the goal of roping the dummy while skiing past. A miss is PLUS 5 seconds. Once Skier 1 crosses a mark, the flag will signal that Skier 2 can go.
Skier 2 - Branding
The flag from Skier 1 crossing the mark will release Skier 2. Skier 2 will ski to the branding dummy, pick up the branding iron and brand the center circle of the calf then put the branding iron back in the bucket before skiing down to cross the mark, the flag will signal that Skier 3 can go. A miss is PLUS 5 seconds.
Skier 3 - Saddle Bronc
The flag from Skier 2 crossing the mark will release Skier 3. Skier 3 will ski around gates to get to the bronc. Each gate missed is PLUS 5 seconds. Once at the bronc the skier must sit in the saddle and ride the bronc through the finish line, stopping the timer. PLUS 5 seconds if not in the saddle. Team members may help by pushing the bronc and Skier 3 across the finish line but the bronc and Skier 3 must cross the finish line first.
Teams will receive prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd by fastest times.
