Steamboat Springs, CO (PRWEB) January 5, 2007
Don't miss the annual Steamboat Springs Bud Light Cowboy Downhill, returning to the resort Jan. 16, 2007. This Steamboat tradition began more than 30 years ago when Billy Kidd, Steamboat's Director of Skiing, and Larry Mahan, six-time All-Around World Champion cowboy, invited several ProRodeo stars to Steamboat for a day of skiing. The Downhill has become the most popular event of the season with over 100 of the best professional rodeo cowboys competing in the most unique ski rodeo in the country. Sponsored by Bud Light, the Cowboy Downhill is always scheduled to coincide with the National Western Stock Show in Denver. For more information call (970) 879-6111.
Steamboat Springs was recently named the #1 Family Resort in the West by SKI Magazine. This winter, the Sunshine Express High-Speed Quad, which will operate on a combination of solar and wind power, will replace a triple chairlift in the Sunshine Bowl area, which will also see new trails and snowmaking enhancements. The Thunderhead and Rendezvous Saddle lodge food courts are getting first-class facelifts. Steamboat is also investing more than half a million into grooming upgrades including the state-of-the-art Zaugg Superpipe cutter, which means even smoother sailing on the slopes. Experience all of the exciting changes at Steamboat this season.
