Mike grew up in Bend spending his youth skiing, climbing and biking Central Oregon’s mountains and trails. Racing became one of his favorite pursuits. Mike’s enthusiasm could be contagious; he was always keen to learn the intricacies of a “good turn” and share the finer points with fellow skiers. More than anything he skied for pure joy and love of the sport.

Mike served on the Board of MBSEF for 8 years, believing strongly in MBSEF’s mission of providing outdoor sports education for youth. He was an ambassador for developing a lifelong appreciation for the values of competition, camaraderie, discipline and fun. Mike’s daughters, Sarah and Kate, came up through MBSEF, and Cheryl has maintained ties to MBSEF by serving as Race Administrator for the past nine seasons.

The idea for this race came about not only to honor Mike’s dedication to the sport, but also to raise scholarship funds for MBSEF athletes pursuing their own passions.

Please join us for the 17th anniversary of the Mike Puddy Memorial Ski race. The format is fun, festive and informal. Challenge your siblings, parents, coach or friends down a dual course set up on Cliffhanger. The first one to the bottom wins!
