1 Eugene Center, Eugene, OR 97401

Since the dawn of time, everything that has lived and breathed on this planet has been subject to the whims of Mother Nature. The nature of an adventurer is inherently rogue; typically wild in character, subject to the fancy of their imagination. We are unequivocally drawn to nature’s rawest fury and deepest mysteries. These are the irreverent souls who pursue the edge.

In the winter of 2017, the magnitude of winter's force was on full display. Telephone-pole-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, TGR recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above.

Join the TGR team as they embark on an adventure filled with fury and glory, and witness the unimaginable.

Lane Community College
Building 4, Room 106
Wednesday, October 18th

The Patrol is looking for new backcountry skiers & snowshoers to assist in patrolling the National Forest Winter trails out of the Gold Lake Snow Park on Highway 58.

The Willamette Backcountry Ski Patrol was formed during the winter of 1982-83 NSP Image in response to safety concerns of the US Forest Service, Willamette area search and rescue personnel, and nordic skiing enthusiasts. Beginning as a group of US Forest Service Volunteers, the Patrol engaged in ski trail maintenance, distribution of winter safety information and evacuation of injured nordic skiers. During the Summer of 1983, The Patrol became an affiliate of the National Ski Patrol System Inc. as the fourth NSPS Nordic ski patrol in Oregon.

Willamette Backcountry Ski Patrol oversees a system of public nordic trails and huts developed within the Willamette National Forest, as well as adjacent backcountry areas within the Diamond Peak Wilderness, Waldo Lake Wilderness and the Maiden Peak road less area.

"The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment's 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent. In this year’s film, WME travels the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.

In Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own. Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride.

From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud—and often downright nervous."
