Of all the winter events I’ve researched and written about this season, Hoodoo’s Winter Carnival in Sisters, Oregon, has a widest variety of zany activities. The festivities are at the Hoodoo Ski Bowl on Saturday, February 10, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.

The schedule of events includes an ax throwing booth, Frisbee golf, musical chairs, a three-legged obstacle race, team tube race, hula hoop contest, pie eating contest, ski javelin throw, archery contest, and a Hoodoo employee snow sculpture contest and bingo. There’s also live music in the evening by the popular Bend-based band Tone Red, a torchlight descent, and fireworks on the mountain.

But, that’s not all! The highlight of the day is the Dummy Downhill contest at 3 p.m. Entrants create dummies, attach them to skis or sled runners, and send them down a steep snow-packed jump leading to a stunning crash. Prizes are awarded for the best dummy and most spectacular crash. All qualified entrants receive a $25 Hoodoo Powder Shoppe gift certificate.

Enter the Dummy Downhill contest.
