Back On Track Canadian Cowboy Ski Race – Why You Should Enter

This year marks the fifth year the Back On Track Canadian Cowboy Ski Race will take place.

The race has found a new home at Mount Norquay, and happen Saturday March 18th.

If you’re thinking its only for Canadian Professional Rodeo Association members, you are incorrect. The race is for anyone who is involved in rodeo and chuckwagons, regardless of the association. All you need to bring is your cowboy hat and chaps to buck the mountain!

Okay, now that you know you can enter if you have your hat and chaps with you, you’re wondering why you should go? Well, all proceeds from the race benefit the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sports Medicine Team, which has contributed over $50,000 in the last four years, so why wouldn’t you enter when its benefiting our rodeo athletes and is a blast at the same time?

If you are free on Saturday, March 18th, head for the hills my friends!
