'Virtual' Oregon Cancer Ski Out - March 1-7, 2021

We are a heartfelt community that creates avenues to raise funds, provide hope and enable healing in the fight against cancer.
What's Raised Here, Stays Here!

Join us March 1-7, 2021, when we celebrate 33 years of serious fun!

Oregon Cancer Ski Out is going Virtual this year. You will have from March 1st – March 6th, 2021 to get your runs in! Winning teams will be announced on Sunday, March 7th during our first-ever virtual fundraiser.

We look forward to “seeing” you on the slopes at Mt. Hood Meadows. Share your photos with your CSO Buffs and you may win a prize. Tag us on Instagram @cancerskiout with hashtag #OregonCSO2021.

The Oregon Cancer Ski Out is an event for skiers and snowboarders that combines fun, competition, and fundraising with a unique racing format designed to let even novice skiers or snowboarders participate in the fight against cancer.

Each year teams of 5 compete for prizes at Mt. Hood Meadows, in a race that rewards consistency and teamwork rather than individual speed. Teams participate in a fun competition with prizes going to the top 3 teams. Participants help raise funds to fight cancer with the Bucks to Buck Cancer, a peer-to-peer campaign. We will be going “Virtual” this year for our fundraising and awards portion of the event with a Live program on Sunday, March 7th to end our week of competition.

Since it began in 1988, the Oregon Cancer Ski Out has raised over $1,000,000 for its beneficiaries. In addition, over 400 people take part in the Ski Out each year, many of whom have participated in this event since its inception.

Each year, the event has seen increased participation, public awareness, and corporate recognition and involvement. The event's success, to date, is largely due to the strong support it has received from local corporations and individuals who want to participate in a fun event that makes a meaningful impact in the fight against cancer.

Join us for our 33rd annual event. Mark your calendars for March 1st – 7th, 2021.

Empowering People in the Fight Against Cancer

Oregon Cancer Ski Out is brought to you by Delphon and the NW Cancer Resource Fund

The Race

You will be skiing/snowboarding two runs each on two adjacent courses. Each of the two courses will be skied by a pacesetter before racing begins each day. The pacesetter establishes the course time on each course. The difference between your time and the pacesetter's time is your handicap. For you mathematicians, the formula is (skier time - pacesetter time)x100.

At the end of Day One, the handicaps of the 5 members of each team will be added together for each run, then the sums of each run will be added together to establish your total team handicap for the day.

Day Two will be conducted the same as Day One. When the handicaps from Day One are tallied, the team whose Day Two total team handicap comes closest to their Day One total team handicap wins the event.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 10 teams.

Gate Times Day One: 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Gate Times Day Two: To Be Announced


Announcement of Race winners and award presentations will be held Monday in "Vertical" at Mt. Hood Meadows, as close to 3:00 p.m. as possible.
