Hoodoo Ski Area

Whether you prefer the deep and challenging powder of Hoodoo’s backside or the finely groomed runs of the front side, the majesty of the location and fun of Hoodoo’s night skiing will bring you back again and again. Even if you don’t ski, there’s plenty to do for everyone including the very popular Autobahn Tube Hill.

The closest ski area to Salem and the mid-Willamette Valley, Hoodoo also draws skiers from Central Oregon who find Hoodoo cheaper, deeper and steeper. The ski slopes are on a big, rounded butte, with lots of wide open terrain. Freestyle skiers and snowboarders will appreciate the terrain park off Blue Valley run, it’s full of rails, tabletops and jumps. Plus there’s 7.5km of groomer Nordic track, with an additional 8.3k on the Skyliner trail which is groomed weekends and holidays.

Located on Hwy 20, 20 miles west of Sisters.
