The Meany Patrol Race is back and open for registration with racers lining up on Saturday, March 18, 2023. Steeped in the rich history of Mountaineers winter backcountry exploration and the nearly one hundred year old Meany Lodge, The Patrol Race remains the backcountry ski touring race in the Pacific Northwest. Sign up to race or to cheer the racers on as they cross the finish line at Meany Lodge.  

Updates to 2023 Race

We are altering the start from a staggered start to a more conventional mass start. This will allow folks to get across the finish line sooner, significantly simplifying race timing and making things more exciting for racers on the course.

We are also adding an “Elite” division, a separate category for highly competitive teams that typically use ultra-light, skimo-style equipment and have target race times of six hours or less. The “Elite” division will have a separate start.

Register to Race

Registration for the Patrol Race will continue to be restricted to teams who are granted entry via a lottery.  To sign up, fill out the lottery sign-up google form with your team information.  The lottery will end on January 1, 2023, and folks will be notified by January 7 of their lottery result.


For more information about the event, including logistics, race rules, required equipment, and answers to frequently asked questions, visit the Patrol Race Page.

Register to Watch

If you are interested participating in the fun but don’t want to race yourself, register to watch the racers cross the finish line at Meany Lodge. This includes full use of the ski hill, rope tows, campus, trails, and a hot lunch served inside Meany Lodge.

Thanks to all of you (past, present and future) who continue to celebrate the rich history and tradition of outdoor winter exploration in the PNW.
