Steamboat's 40th Annual Cowboy Downhill

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Beyond the serene wilderness we enjoy, our Western culture is another unique characteristic of the Steamboat area. If you're in town this evening, check out the Cowboy Up Party and Balloon Glow at Steamboat Mountain Village. At 5 p.m., six hot air balloons will light up the Steamboat sky from the ski base area. You can take a close look at the beautiful, colorful balloons, or hop on one to be transported to mountain dining. At 6 p.m., ProRodeo cowboys will gather at Bear River Bar & Grill at the ski area base for the Cowboy Up Party and music by Georgia-based folk band Banks & Shane. The cowboys will be "cowboying up" for tomorrow's 40th annual Cowboy Downhill at Steamboat's ski area. On Jan. 20 at 1 p.m., more than 100 ProRodeo cowboys will compete in slalom events and a "stampede" while duded up in their cowboy hats, chaps and full regalia. Olympic champion and Steamboat Director of Skiing Billy Kidd and six-time All-Around World Champion cowboy Larry Mahan came up with the competition 40 years ago, and it remains a signature Steamboat event. Following the Cowboy Downhill stampede, Waylon Jennings' son Shooter will play country and Southern rock at the base area. Steamboat's Western roots provide lots of activities to fill your time around snowmobiling - come join us!
