Patrol Race

February 23

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day last of February, repeating until February 25, 2023

Ski from Snoqualmie Pass to Windy Pass to Yakima Pass over Stampede Pass to Meany Lodge following the historic patrol race course.

In the 1920’s adventurous Mountaineers scouted an 18+ mile ski route between their two mountain lodges (one near Snoqualmie Pass, the other near Stampede Pass). In 1930, they inaugurated a race over this route. This race was the first of its kind in North America. Three-person teams would start at intervals from the Snoqualmie Lodge over a trail broken by a party that left before dawn. Each person was required to carry a ten-pound pack of emergency provisions and the three team members had to finish within a minute of each other at the Meany Ski Hut (near Stampede Pass). The race ran for twelve years and produced tales of both misadventure and great ski prowess.
