STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colorado — We just got in from our first day on the mountain here in Steamboat and what a day it’s been so far. We are about to head to tonight’s kick off party at the Bear River Bar & Grill which starts at 5:30pm.
Tomorrow everything gets started at 11:00am with a lunch for the contestants followed by the 40th Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill featuring the Timed Event Slalom followed by the Stampede event both starting at 1:00pm.
Events are held all day long with a free concert featuring Shooter Jennings directly following the race.
At 7:00pm the Cowboy Gala wraps up the event.
We are looking forward to the events tonight and tomorrow. The contestants, who had to be entered in the PBR or Pro Rodeo in Denver, receive: lift tickets, rentals, rooms all for two days, a jacket sponsored by Wrangler and free beer for their $125 entry fee.
