2018 Cowboy Downhill

January 15, 2018 all-day
Steamboat Ski Resort
It all began over 40 years ago when Billy Kidd, Steamboat’s Director of Skiing, and Larry Mahan, six-time All-Around World Champion cowboy, decided to invite a few of the ProRodeo stars to Steamboat for a day of skiing. The cowboys had such a great time that the Downhill has become the most popular event of the season with over 100 of the best professional rodeo cowboys competing in the most unique ski rodeo in the country.

The Cowboy Downhill is always scheduled to coincide with the National Western Stock Show in Denver and the action busts out of the starting chutes at 1:00pm on Stampede on Monday, January 15th. After the race, kick up your boots with a free concert as part of the Bud Light Rocks the Boat Concert Series.
