Winter means itís Carnival time!
|Snow sculptures wonít be the only sights on the slopes of Hoodoo next month. |
MCKENZIE BRIDGE, Oregon (STPNS) -- SANTIAM PASS: With this yearís ski season in full swing and an ample snowpack now in place in the Mid-Cascades, the Hoodoo Ski Area will host its popular Winter Carnival on Saturday, February 9th.
Now in its 32nd year, Hoodooís Winter Carnival promises to be a celebration of the fun and excitement of winter recreation in the Northwest. The day-long schedule of events will include an ax throwing booth, Frisbee golf, musical chairs, a three-legged obstacle race, a team tube race, a hula-hoop contest, a fly-athalon, a pie eating contest, a ski javelin throw, an archery contest, a Hoodoo employee snow sculpture contest, bingo and a special dinner menu. The always-popular Dummy Downhill contest at 3 p.m. features large figures made by Hoodoo guests. 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.
Plans for later in the day include live music in the lodge, a bonfire at 4:30 p.m., the annual torchlight descent at 9 p.m. and a fireworks show on the mountain at 9:15 p.m. For a complete Winter Carnival schedule and the Downhill Dummy registration form, go to www.hoodoo.com/events.
