Whether it’s riding or guiding in the backcountry on horseback, floating one of the three surrounding valleys catching a trout on a fly rod, downhill skiing, or her newest passion, skijoring, Justa Adams, Sales Associate, Big Sky Sotheby's International Realty makes the most of everything Big Sky country has to offer.
Skijoring is a winter sport that involves a skier being pulled by a horse through a course with jumps and gates in the fastest time possible and Justa is a founding member of the Big Sky Skijoring Association (BSSA), which recently held its inaugural “Best in the West” showdown on March 17th-18th right in Big Sky’s Town Center. Her background in fundraising and event planning, combined with the hard work and dedication of her BSSA co-founders and the tremendous support of the Big Sky community, proved invaluable in getting this family-friendly event off the ground. All ages attended - with the youngest skier at 4 years old and the oldest rider at 65 years old, the Best in the West Showdown really is an event for all ages whether you’re a spectator, competitor, or volunteer. Eighty-two teams competed in numerous divisions with the total payout pot being just over $10k for all competitors and divisions combined, in addition to custom belt buckles awarded to the winning rider and skier for the novice, sport, and open divisions. With the incredible success of BSSA’s first competition, Justa can hardly wait until next year!
