Somebody forgot to tell Beaver, Okla., saddle bronc rider Will Payne that the snowplow isn't the best way to land a jump at the 36th annual Cowboy Downhill, which was held at Steamboat Ski Area Tuesday afternoon. The event drew 64 cowboys who races, jumped and roped their way through a challenging course on the Stampede run.

Skis, poles, snow and cowboy hats went flying over the gates on the sides of Stampede run Tuesday afternoon, as 64 cowboys on skis and snowboards flew, tumbled or ran the final event of the 36th annual Cowboy Downhill. Starting at 4 p.m. Tuesday, a few hours later than in years past, the event drew a crowd that filled Gondola Square and lined the sides of the racecourse up Headwall at the base of Steamboat Ski Area.
