PureWest Announces Flathead Lake Ski Joring Sponsorship

1481565907KALISPELL, MT - PureWest Real Estate is proud to announce its sponsorship of the inaugural Flathead Lake Skijoring Championships, which will be held at the Lakeside Club’s private airstrip over the first weekend of the New Year, from Dec. 31 to Jan. 1, 2017.

This sponsorship is part of PureWest Real Estate’s ongoing commitment to promoting the unique culture and communities of Montana. Skijoring, a beloved Western tradition that combines skiing and cowboy heritages, involves riders on horseback pulling skiers through slalom gates and over jumps.

The family-friendly event is expected to draw athletes and spectators from across the country and Canada. Residents are looking forward to putting the best of the region on display and welcoming visitors with Montana-style hospitality. Sending ripples of interest through the nationwide skijoring community, the organizers of the Lakeside event estimate the purse will top $25,000, which would be the biggest combined purse ever in skijoring.

“We’re thrilled to support this new and exciting community event,” PureWest co-owner Dale Crosby-Newman said. “It’s an incredible example of the possibilities that Northwest Montana’s outdoor playground offers. We’re very proud to help establish the inaugural Flathead Lake championships, and hope to support this new tradition in the years to come.”
