Cowboy Downhill

44th Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill

Cowboy Downhill Steamboat SpringsNothing says Steamboat like cowboys on skis! That's what Billy Kidd, Director of Skiing, and Larry Mahan, six-time All-Around World Champion cowboy, were thinking when they made the decision to invite some of the ProRodeo cowboys up to Steamboat for some serious fun on the slopes. Forty years later the Downhill has evolved into a signature Steamboat event, as over 100 professional rodeo cowboys flock to the 'Boat for one of the most unique events in the West!
