The Oregon Cancer Ski Out is a two-day 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. Volunteer celebrity and professional coaching staff are on hand throughout the race, coordinating teams and assisting with professional advice and instructions.
Funds are raised through corporate sponsorships, team entry fees, participants voluntarily raising Bucks to Buck Cancer, a combination of silent and oral auctions, and the ever-popular Cowboy up for Cancer dinner and casino night held in Hood River. 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.
