How to spell ski-joring?

Sidebar by Lynda La Rocca

Leadville – March 2002 – Colorado Central Magazine –

So is it ski joring, skijoring, or ski-joring?

Take your pick. Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (Tenth Edition) lists it as one word, from the Norwegian skikjøring (ski plus kjøring, or “driving”).

On the North American Ski Joring Association’s web site, it’s two words. I have also seen the term hyphenated on event posters, announcements, etc.

For this article, I decided to go with the dictionary version. –L.L.R.
