SISTERS, OR -- Hoodoo Ski Area plans to open for the season, this weekend. It’s the earliest Hoodoo has opened since the 2005-2006 season. They’ll have the Manzanita and Early Rider lifts running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Other lifts and the Autobahn Tubing Park are expected to open later in the season, weather permitting.
Lift tickets are discounted to $35, this weekend, and those who bring two non-perishable food donations can buy tickets for just $20. Donations benefit the Giving Plate, in Bend.
