Pro Rodeo is a Steamboat Springs tradition

Steamboat Springs was a ranching town way before it became a world-class ski resort, and those roots shine in town’s weekly PRCA-sanctioned Pro Rodeo series, drawing the country’s best riders, ropers, bullfighters and specialty acts to Romick Arena downtown.

The series is a seven-time winner of the Mountain States Circuit/Best Small Rodeo of the Year award and a former recipient of the Best Small Outdoor Rodeo in America award. Each year, contestants competed for more than $250,000 during the 10-week series, and coveted points for the National Finals in Las Vegas. 

“We have more annual pro rodeos than most other communities out West,” says rodeo chairman Brent Romick. “That says a lot about what rodeo means tour town. It makes Steamboat pretty unique. There aren’t many towns with this authentic of a rodeo background.”
