Upcoming Uniquely Steamboat Events & Shenanigans

There is always something to do or some sort of celebration going on in Steamboat Springs. Our town is lively. Some of the events are unique to Steamboat, honoring our western roots with a little Ski Town USA folly, like the ones coming up.


  • Monday, January 20 – 40th Annual Cowboy Downhill
    Have you ever seen ProRodeo cowboys downhill ski? Well here’s your chance. 40 years ago former Olympian and Director of Skiing for the Steamboat Ski Area, Billy the Kidd, and 6-time All-Around World Champion Cowboy, Larry Mahan, decided to invite some of the countries top cowboy to the slopes for some fun. Participants and spectators enjoyed the downhill shenanigans so much that the Cowboy Downhill still takes place today with over 100 professional rodeo cowboys making their way to The ‘Boat to slalom and “Stampede”. It’s a hoot!
