Hoodoo to Close Season with $15 Lifties

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2012 at 9:50 PM

Although this weekend's weather, assuming the forecast for mid-70s holds, is likely to scream summer to most Central Oregonians, those who are still thinking winter, or maybe just, spring, can indulge their impulse at Hoodoo Ski Resort.

Hoodoo announced today that it's adding a final weekend to the season this Saturday and Sunday and offering skiers and boarders that make the trip to Santiam Pass $15 lifties. Boo-ya!

Snow-rich Hoodoo Adds a Week To Season

Posted By on Fri, Apr 6, 2012 at 12:07 AM

Hoodoo, AKA Central Oregon's other ski resort, announced today that, thanks to abundant spring snow, it's extending the season at least one more week through April 14 and 15th and possibly as far out as April 22.

The resort was scheduled to close on Sunday, but the ample snow convinced managers to add at least another week to the season. In the meantime, the resort is hosting its annual spring fling celebration this Saturday with pond skiing, ski bike races and an ultracross competition. 

The resort is open Thurs-Sun for the balance of the year.

Ax-Throwing Booth Highlights Hoodoo Winter Carnival

Throw an ax, win a prize at Hoodoo.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 12:28 AM

Yes, you read that right. Hoodoo guests can walk up and chuck and ax at a target during next Saturday’s (Feb. 11) Winter Carnival celebration at the Santiam ski area.

If that doesn’t pique your interest, there’s plenty else to do. But we have to be honest, we don’t actually want to associate with you or your tree-hugging ilk.

Other activities includes an employee snow sculpture contest, winter disc golf, team tube races, a pie-eating contest and, wait for it, Bingo! 

Actually, there’s more stuff going on than we could possibly list here. But all we really care about is the opportunity to throw an axe in a sanctioned carnival atmosphere.

Sisters, Ore. -- With the 2011-12 ski season in full swing and an ample snowpack now in place in the Mid-Cascades, Hoodoo Ski Area will host its popular Winter Carnival, presented by Subaru of Bend, on Feb. 11.

The dummies, which are attached to skis or sled runners, are sent flying down a steep course with a snow-packed jump that leads them to a stunning crash.
