Are you ready for the 94th Annual Ski Hi Stampede?

The Ski-Hi Stampede, Colorado’s oldest pro rodeo, has roots as deep as the San Luis Valley itself. It began in 1919, but two years were deducted because of World War II, when no events were held. The first rodeo was held August 11-13, 1919, and was called the Ski-Hi Stampede. Old newspapers reported that more than 10,000 people assembled to watch the local competition. It has continued for nine decades as an annual event and is an important piece of western history that can still be lived.
