Friday Night Lights at HooDoo

Shredding the slopes offers a totally new thrill under a clear night sky full of twinkling stars. If you’re new to night skiing, HooDoo Ski Area is the only resort in Central Oregon that offers this unique winter rush. Although the mountain is open from 4pm to 9pm every Wednesday through Saturday during the season, Friday nights are when the fun really ramps up. It’s all thanks to Friday Night Lights, a special event in partnership with Ablis CBD that takes night skiing to a whole new level.

Sisters Vacation Rentals invites you to experience the exhilaration of night skiing like never before, complemented by the comfort and charm of our vacation properties near Sisters, Oregon.

Friday Night Lights

When: Fridays, January 5 - March 22, 2024 | 4pm to 9pm

Where: 27400 Big Lake Rd, Sisters, OR, United States (HooDoo Ski Area)

Cost: $39 per lift ticket; free to attend

Winter may be winding down, but there’s still wonder to be found at Friday Night Lights. Every Friday evening from now until March 22, ski enthusiasts and fun-seekers of all ages can enjoy night skiing like never before. In partnership with Ablis CBD, HooDoo has created a special event full of mountain magic. Imagine descending 23 illuminated night runs that span 500 acres, each enhanced with lights that have custom-built filters and diodes to cast the snowy slopes in an optimal sparkle. If you arrive early, you can start with a colorful sunset ride and glide until stars fill the dark winter sky. Just be sure to stay within the designated night areas; venturing out of bounds will result in you losing your ticket.

If you’re nervous about night skiing or just spent your day on the slopes, don’t worry! Friday Night Lights is about more than just skiing. It’s a full evening festival of snow, music, and mountain delights. Snag a spot by one of the evening bonfires to swap stories with fellow shredders and warm your hands near the crackling flames; sway to the rhythm of live music from local and national bands; and mingle with pro skiers and snowboarders at weekly meet-and-greets (and even snag a selfie or two.) Indulge in delightful food and drinks, and immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere. $39 grants you access to the night runs, but you can enjoy the other mountain festivities for free!
