Dillon grew up racing in the Pacific Northwest, starting his career at the small hometown hill of 49 Degrees North just outside of Spokane, Washington. Finding he had a talent for ski racing, he advanced to training with the Spokane Ski Racing Association at Mt. Spokane.

He continued to ski in college for the Montana State University Intramural Ski Team while enjoying the cold-smoke powder of the Northern Rockies.
