About 2022 Cancer Ski Out

Join us for SERIOUS FUN at the 33rd Annual Oregon Cancer Ski Out (OCSO). In 1988, a small group of friends created the OCSO as a way to positively channel their sadness and frustration over the loss of loved ones due to cancer. We raise funds to aid cancer research, help those fighting cancer, and child cancer support. Generous sponsors, donors, dedicated race participants, and more have raised over $1,500,000 for this cause. 

What is the OCSO: This is a one-of-a kind fundraising event that brings together skiers and snow boarders in teams of four to RAISE FUNDS for the fight against cancer. This is not an expert ski event as the race is formatted to reward consistency, not speed. All ages and abilities are invited; experts not required! What's raised here, stays here; all funds given to local cancer organizations.    

We have big changes this year, we are moving to a one-day race event on Sunday March 13th, 2022.  Teams will be made up of 4 skiers this year and the team entry will only be $795.  Race will be 2 runs in the morning and 2 in the afternoon and back to the same formula as past years with every team running the same course.

Included for all team members:

* Entry to Race/lift ticket if not a season pass holder to Mt. Hood Meadows
* Saturday Dinner/auction at the Mt. Hood Oregon Resort
* Breakfast/lunch Sunday at Mt. Hood Meadows
* Photo package 
* CSO Buff

Saturday evening will be our Auction and get together for teams and all involved at Mt. Hood Oregon Resort.  Details will be emailed to all participants after the first of the year. 


Top 3 Race teams will win prizes similar to those in past years.  Top 3 fundraising teams will also win prizes for each team member.  Let's get out there and raise some money for a great cause!

Why Participate?

Why has the Ski Out been so successful for so many years? The answer is really simple, it goes back to the reason it was started in the first place. PEOPLE, those who have had cancer, and those who have had friends and family affected by cancer. The devastating personal impact creates a community, a "family", with a mission to provide the money for the local services that can provide HOPE for those we love and ourselves!

While we do this, we work at it being fun...SERIOUS FUN!

The Cancer Ski Out provides a method for you to recruit others to join you in the ongoing fight against cancer. Your money is entrusted to a group of your neighbors who ensure your money is invested in local programs closest to those you care about.

How Your Support Makes a Difference

This photo showcases how your support makes a difference... CSO Board member Jeanne and Dr. Taylor who helped save her life, thriving and killing it on the Mountain.  Jeanne is living proof that what we do makes a difference.  
"I would not have successfully battled stage 4 Matastasized Melanoma without the committed team of people at Cancer Ski Out.  The support and contact to top Doctors made all the difference." 
Jeanne Beacham

"What's raised here, stays here!" is a major theme of our efforts. Your money will go to local research being conducted at OHSU's Knight Cancer Institute, hospice and children grief counseling through Providence Health services, support for children and their families provided by Candlelighter's of Oregon and women's breast cancer support through Breast Friends.

Thanks to our generous sponsors
