Big Snowfall A Boon For Ski Areas

After 5 to 6 feet of snow fell last week in the Central Oregon Cascades, ski areas in the region are set up for a potentially stellar late-winter and spring season.

Hoodoo ski area near Sisters boasts a snowpack of 104 inches after it received about 60 inches of snowfall last week. Some winters, Hoodoo does not even reach 60 inches for the entire season.

“Last year I don’t think we ever went over 70 inches,” says Hoodoo general manager Matthew McFarland. “This is definitely a turn for the better.

We love it, just love it.”
