We have received 2.5" of new snow in the past 24
hours and all seven mountains of Killington
Resort will be open for Friday. Temperatures are
expected to drop Saturday night, with the
possibility of significant snowfall Saturday
night through Sunday!!
At Killington we remain confident that the vast
amount of terrain covered by the world’s largest
snowmaking system will provide the best overall
conditions available in the East, no matter what
Mother Nature delivers. Our groomers will be
working through the night laying miles and miles
of corduroy on 74 trails. Friday we’ll be
spinning 20 lifts, including the K-1 and Skyeship
Express Gondolas and three express quad chairs!

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO—January 12, 2006-- ProRodeo Champions
from across North America will convene in Steamboat – Ski
Town, U.S.A.® – for the 32nd Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill
on Tuesday, January 17, 2006.
"The Bud Light Cowboy Downhill is an event highlight of both
the rodeo and ski seasons, having become one of the most
unique events in the country that the whole family can enjoy
together," said Andy Wirth, vice president of sales & marketing
for Steamboat. "This event is a tribute to the original rodeo
cowboy. The combination of Steamboat’s genuine friendliness,
real western heritage and world-class skiing on over 20 feet
of pure Champagne Powder® snow this season has made our town
and resort the ideal setting for this event for over three
The Cowboy Downhill started back in 1974 when Larry Mahan,
six-time All-Around World Champion cowboy, and Billy Kidd,
Steamboat’s Director of Skiing & Olympic medalist, decided
it would be fun to invite a few of the ProRodeo stars from
the Denver Stock Show up to Steamboat for a day of skiing
and racing fun. Today, it has grown into one of the most
unique ski rodeos in the world with up to 100 ProRodeo
cowboys trading in their spurs for skis and snowboards in
a western-style race to the finish line.
The day’s events begin with the dual slalom race at 1:30 p.m.
on Headwall. After negotiating the slalom course and on-course
jump, the cowboys must lasso a person, saddle a horse, and
cross the finish line in the fastest time and all in one piece.
The grand finale of the 32nd Annual Bud Light Cowboy Downhill
is a chaotic western Stampede on skis and snowboards. The
Stampede utilizes a mass start and pits cowboy against cowboy
in a winner takes all race down Headwall. The greatest
challenge for the winner is getting out of the way of a
hundred other cowboys hurling down the hill in hot pursuit.

After clouds covered our beautiful mountain yesterday, Mammoth is once
again glowing in the morning sun. I feel spoiled by Mammoth's pristine
weather as another new day promises clear skies, calm winds and
temperatures in the low 40s. You know you've got it made when you can put the
goggles away and pull out the sunglasses for a beautiful January day.
Currently it's 27 degrees at Main Lodge, but I guarantee the bright sun
will warm us up in no time. We plan to operate all chairs today with
the exception of 7 and 20.
I'm embarking on a new adventure tonight and I can't wait to tell you
how it is. I'm going on a Full Moon Snowshoe Tour! I love Mammoth's
diverse outdoor experiences. I have a feeling I'll have a good report
Have a great day and I'll see you out there!
