Cowboy Mouth set to play before Cowboy Downhill
New Orleans rock ’n’ roll band Cowboy Mouth will play a free live show at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 18 before the 37th Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill at Steamboat Ski Area.
The 37th Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill has professional rodeo cowboys trading their bulls and broncs for skis and snowboards in races at the base of Mount Werner, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. said in a news release. Each competitor participates in a dual slalom, where side-by-side courses test racers’ speed, agility and rodeo skills. After racing through gates and surviving a jump, the cowboys must lasso a tenderfoot, saddle a horse and cross the finish line, in the fastest time. The slalom course is followed immediately by the stampede, where racers storm down the mountain in a winner-takes-all race.
The resort will feature family activities from noon to 4 p.m. before the Cowboy Downhill. Gondola Square will contain booths from the Community Agriculture Alliance, 4-H farm animal petting zoo, learn-to-rope clinics and plenty of food and refreshments at Bear River Bar & Grill.
