Yeehaw! The Cowboy Downhill rides ’em down the slippery slopes of Steamboat

There are great ski races and then there is the Cowboy Downhill. The annual race in Steamboat is one of the most entertaining sights of any ski season. Rodeo cowboys, in their hats and western wear, compete in events that combine the likes of roping and ski racing. But it’s not just for grins: These cowboys COMPETE!

The latest edition went off on Tuesday with the usual collection of thrills, spills and smiles. Check out this slideshow and watch the wild video of the race, which includes commentary from Olympic Gold medalist and longtime Steamboat ski icon Billy Kidd.
