MCKENZIE BRIDGE, Oregon (STPNS) -- OREGON CASCADES: With around 5 1/2 feet of snow at Hoodoo and over 11 feet at Mt. Bachelor February’s strong snowstorms brought a welcome change for resort owners and those who might wonder if summer stream flows would be impacted by little runoff.

Warm weather and rainfall delayed Hoodoo’s opening until they got the equivalent of a full season’s of white stuff in less than a week.

General manager Matthew McFarland said the resort’s Winter Carnival is a go - set for this Saturday, March 1st.
