Skijoring not boring: Zach West wins Open competition

The Black Hills Ski Team again hosted a "skijoring" contest where riders pulled a skier or snowboarder. Fastest times win!

Each team in the open ran two times – first in a match run and then in a draw

The top 12 fastest times were called back for short go.

The novice also had two runs – match and draw – but no short go.

The draw winners won cash from Belle Fourche Livestock and the match winners won cash from the Branding Iron Steakhouse in Belle Fourche.

The top 3 in novice and top 5 in the open received cash prizes.
