Gearing up for a 2020 season of skiing!

In case you have been living under a rock for the past few weeks, it’s snowing! The summer did not quite turn out how many of us expected and it seemed it never really came at all. Oh well, we’re Pacific Northwesteners, we like the rain anyway. It’ll be November soon, the annual time to hibernate, eat a lot, rest up from all the summer adventures, and prep for the skiing to come!

We here at Snow Goat have been working to put on another great season of racing in the area. Currently we are still in discussions with a few of the local resorts to nail down exact race dates, but we are set to round out a full schedule this year. Loup Loup Rando Race will be back for a fourth year and Vertfest will continue the long tradition of kicking our butts at Alpental. Last year, we started a new race at Crystal Mountain that everyone seemed to dig, so we are planning on that as well. And last, we have one more new race in store in the area we will announce once we have it finalized! Also, we are offering a military and first responder discount.

In the meantime, we have a great pre-season trail run and party planned at Pro Ski and Mountain Service’s new shop in North Bend on November 13th. Recently Pro Ski moved out from their small storefront where they’d been for 20 years into a much larger facility, so they have room for so many more toys! We will also be hosting a group trail run on a peak in the North Bend area in the afternoon before the party, so you get to earn your beers. Pro Ski will be offering 15% off skimo specific skis, boots, and bindings just this night, so if you’ve been on the fence for getting a setup for the next season, it’ll be hard to match that along with the customer service to fit the boot and nail the binding mount.

Race results and photos from the 2019 season can be found here.


This is your Herd. We are a proud group of racers that challenge ourselves in the steeped history of skiing. Our race series is built on our community that ranges from first time racers to life long pros. You’ll find yourself at home.



We are excited to present a ski mountaineering race series that includes current races and new. Our series is focused on building community, incredible venues, and just good ol’ fashioned fun.


Our courses involve challenging climbs with breathtaking descents. The venues are some of the most stunning ski locales in the Cascades.

Take the podium with a win or meet a new touring buddy. All are welcome to the Snow Goat Skimo Series.



“If you don’t have a little adventure, then it’s not ski mountaineering, it’s just skiing.” -Jason Hummel

Backcountry skiing and splitboarding is a way of life in the PNW. The bushwhacks, the rain, the Cascade Concrete, it all adds up to a great adventure. Get out and create a story to tell.
