Grab your cowboy hats and throw on your boots for the Rocky Mountain Bull Bash PBR on Sunday.

The Steamboat Springs Stage Race is back! Nearly 300 road cyclists compete in a four stage race which includes a time trial, circuit race, road race, and criterium.
Wild West Aircrafts:
An exciting part of the Wild West Air Fest is that you can be apart of the action and fly in the Douglas C-47 Skytrain, or Dakota, a military transport aircraft that was developed from the Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II and remained in front line operations through the 1950s with a few remaining in operation to this day. C-47 and many other plane rides are available!
