SISTERS, OR -- For the first time, Hoodoo will offer free skiing on Friday, April first - no foolin'. Leif Williams tells KBND News the ski hill has had a much better season than last year, with 80 days of operation, compared to just eight in the 2014-15 season.
He says a free ski day is a way to thank their guests. "Traditionally, we've had some pretty slow Fridays following Spring Break. Our General Manager Matthew McFarland decided that instead of offering a two-for-one like we've done in the past, we're just offering a free ski day and hopefully driving a lot of traffic up there to the mountain."
Williams expects it'll be a busy day. "The snow coverage is great. We still have 75-77" on the ground at the base of the mountain and Friday's looking to be an amazing 55-degree day full of sunshine and great spring skiing." Hoodoo will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and no coupons or reservations are needed to ski for free on Friday.
