42nd Bud Light Cowboy Downhill

January 18, 2016

Steamboat Springs, CO

It all began more than 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 80 of the best professional rodeo cowboys competing in the most unique ski rodeo in the country. 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 1:30pm on Stampede on Monday, January 18. After the race, kick up your boots with a free concert as part of the Rocks the Boat Concert Series.
