Forecasters are still predicting snow in Idaho's Mountains but winters bite can't last much longer because the rodeo season is about to begin in Riggins.

The Salmon River Cowboys present the 69th Annual Riggins Rodeo May 6th and 7th and nothing says spring and summer like the rodeo season.

As always the list of rodeos in Idaho is lengthy with the Snake River Stampede and the Caldwell Night Rodeo two of the best in the world.
