Chills, spills, winter thrills!

On the skilift at hoodoo
 

Whether your pleasure is blasting down the slopes on skis or trekking through the forests on cross-country skis or snowshoes, Sisters Country will fulfill all your desires for winter adventure.

Alpine Skiing
Hoodoo Ski Area
Hoodoo has been serving local skiers since 1938. It offers a family-friendly, neighborly environment – and some great runs.

Hoodoo's top elevation is 5,703 feet and almost two-thirds of its 806 skiable acres face due north. This makes for excellent snow conditions that complement 1,035 feet of vertical drop. For more information visit www.hoodoo.com or call 541-822-3799 or the 24-hour snow phone at 541-822-3337.

Mount Bachelor
A little farther afield is Mt. Bachelor, offering world-class destination skiing, featuring 3,365 feet of vertical drop over varied terrain suitable for all levels of skill. For more information visit www.mtbachelor.com or call 800-829-2442. Call 541-382-7888 for Bachelor's snow report.

Santiam Sno Park
This sno park is located across the highway from the Hoodoo entrance road (off Highway 20/126). It's a popular sledding area with nearby trails for skiers and snowshoers.

TubingTubing
Both Hoodoo and Mt. Bachelor offer tubing facilities that make for a safe, fun family outing. Hoodoo's Autobahn Tube Area is located at the base of Hayrick Mountain and offers spectacular views.

It's a good idea to experience the Sisters backcountry with a guide service. A qualified guide enhances both your experience and your safety. You can enjoy backcountry snowmobile instruction and tours, and guided cross-country ski trips through a newly constructed series of huts.

Ray Benson Sno Park

About one mile from Hoodoo, this site offers a variety of trails for winter sports. Dog teams, skiers, snowmobilers, snowshoers and skijorers all enjoy this popular winter sno park. A large shelter in the parking area has a wood-burning stove and the Forest Service stocks plenty of wood for winter visitors.

Parks require sno park permits (daily or seasonal), available at Hoodoo, Black Butte Ranch, Lutton's Ace Hardware and Eurosports in Sisters.

The North Loop Trail covers four miles through scenic forest. The South Loop Trail out of Benson Sno Park leads to Brandenburg shelter and a six-mile scenic snowshoe or cross-country trek.

Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing
Hoodoo offers 15.8 kilometers of groomed trails. The Nordic center has rental gear for conventional skiing and skating. Mt. Bachelor has 56 kilometers of Nordic skiing.
