This Thursday, June 30, 2011 the Beaver Creek Rodeo Series returns for its 10th season. Dust off your cowboy boots and experience the spirit of the Old West at the resort's family friendly hoedown held every Thursday night through August 18th. Dates for this year's rodeo series include June 30, July 7, 14 and 21 and August 4, 11 and 18.

The full lineup of classic rodeo events include bronc riding, calf scramble, team roping, mutton bustin', barrel racing, bull riding and burro racing. Gates open at 5 p.m. so bring the whole family out for pre-event activities including pony rides, face painting, mechanical bull rides, western fare and a wide range of barbeque offered by Vail Valley Restaurants.

Rodeo tickets may be purchased at the Beaver Creek Information Center up to 3 p.m. on the day of the rodeo or onsite at the rodeo beginning at 5 p.m. The rodeo takes place rain or shine, and tickets are therefore non-refundable. Ticket pricing is as follows:

• VIP Seating- $22
• Seniors (ages 65+)- $12
• Adults (ages 18-64)- $17
• Youth (ages 13-17)- $10
• Children 12 years and younger- FREE

Registration to compete in the rodeo begins at 5 p.m. on the day of the event at the information tent inside the gates. Children may sign up for mutton bustin' and the calf scramble each Thursday night and adults ages 18 and older may register a team of three to compete in the burro racing competition.

Located in Avon behind Chapel Square at Traer Creek, free shuttle service to the rodeo is available from the Covered Bridge in Beaver Creek Village. Shuttles run continuously from 5 to 9 p.m. Free parking is available directly across the street from the rodeo grounds, with a one-minute walk to the site. Alcoholic beverages, pets, and glass containers cannot be brought onto the rodeo grounds.
