Get to the launch grounds early to see the balloons inflate and enjoy this wonderful photography opportunity. The rodeo portion of the event consists of fun contests like dipping into Bald Eagle Lake and since balloon pilots can be pretty competitive, you’re guaranteed a good show. Once the balloons are in the air, sip on coffee, grab breakfast from one of our local vendors, and let the kids burn off some energy in the kids zone as you watch more balloons dot the Yampa Valley sky.
Get in on the water sports action with kayak competitions, raft races, stand up paddleboard events, and more at the Yampa River Festival and SUP Cup. The festivities begin with Paddling Life Creek Race at Fish Creek on Friday, June 3rd.
It is never too early to start training for the Steamboat Marathon. Celebrating 35 years of running a beautiful rolling course along the Elk River, views of the Zirkel Wilderness, and finally finishing in downtown Steamboat Springs, this run is not to be missed.
Join us for this beautiful race through the Rockies, June 5, 2016.
