Cowboy Downhill Steamboat Springs 2011 — It's A Wild Ride

Originally published Tuesday, January 11, 2011 —

Welcome to Steamboat Springs where the cowboys are alive and well! We like to keep our cowboys on their toes in this Western town, so once a year a one-of-a-kind event is held just for those men of the west — the Annual Cowboy Downhill. January 18, 2011 is the day to watch the cowboy chaos ensue!

This is one of the craziest events you'll ever see — We take a ski hill, a couple of jumps, a few course flags, some skis and snowboards, and then you mix in a lot western — horses, saddles, ropes and a beautiful cowgirl. Shake 'em all together and you get some inexperienced cowboys trying to ski while racing to the bottom through the race course, off jumps, to saddle a horse, rope the fair lady and make it to the finish line... YEE HAW!

But in all seriousness — these really are true cowboys. Most of the participating cowboys are true Pro-Rodeo star cowboys who come to Steamboat to try their skiing legs while in Colorado for the National Western Stock Show.

So, make sure you don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind event. Book your lodging now with ResortQuest Steamboat! Stay in pure luxury, ski all day, play all night and get to watch one of the best western/ski events you'll ever see! View our awesome winter lodging deals and when you book online, you automatically get the best deal!
