If students want to spend some time on the mountain getting turns in, but are stuck in class for most of the week, there is still hope. OSU-Cascades adventures will provide a free ride up to night skiing at Hoodoo to the first ten students who arrive by 3 p.m. on Friday at Cascades hall.
Once there, one can expect to pay $20 for lift tickets, and $18 for rentals if needed. The lifts run from 3:30 to 9:00 allowing for five and a half of hours of shredding. Hoodoo has two chairs illuminated for night skiing, Easy Rider chair (green rated slope), and Manzanita chair (moderate-advanced slope).
Unlike larger resorts, Hoodoo night skiing offers a more laidback atmosphere.
