Colin Wolfe doubles up with victories at Cowboy Downhill

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. – Before 2018, steer wrestler Colin Wolfe had never competed in the Cowboy Downhill in Steamboat Springs, Colo.

Now, it’s a favorite stop for him – and for good reason.

A year after winning the slalom timed-event competition, the Wenatchee, Wash., cowboy doubled his pleasure by winning the slalom event in 27.4 seconds and the stampede race Jan. 21.

“It was a cool experience to win both,” said Wolfe, 33. “I don’t think that happens very often. After going last year, I learned that I needed to do a couple of things differently this time around. In that (stampede) race when you’re all crowded together you have to find a way to not get tangled up with everybody. It is one big free-for-all and I just tried to keep my distance from people, so they didn’t tangle me up.”

There were 97 contestants from Denver’s National Western Stock Show and Rodeo who entered the Downhill, and more than 25 legends and friends who competed, some who have been attending the event for more than 30 years.

The winner of the best wreck was Brooke Wallace, Miss Rodeo Kansas 2019.

The Cowboy Downhill is held in conjunction with the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver and began in 1975. The Downhill has become a fundraiser for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, which provides financial assistance to injured PRCA cowboys.

“The is event is a lot of fun,” said Wolfe, who competes in the Columbia River Circuit. “They take good care of you, and I plan on being back next year.”

Wolfe had plenty experience skiing before competing in the Cowboy Downhill.

“I started skiing when I was like 2 years old and I’ve been skiing my entire life,” he said.

Wolfe was introduced to the sport of skiing as an infant because his family lived three miles from Mission Ridge Ski Area in Wenatchee.
