Hoodoo Ski Area’s annual Winter Carnival will be held Feb. 9.

In its 32nd year, the carnival is a daylong celebration that includes disc golf, ax throwing, musical chairs, a three-legged obstacle race, hula hooping, live music, an employee snow sculpture contest and more.

The Dummy Downhill contest, featuring large figures made my Hoodoo guests, will be at 3 p.m. The dummies are placed on skis or runners, and are sent down a steep course with a snow-packed jump leading to a crash at the end.

The Autobahn Tubing Park will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Hoodoo’s five lifts are scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with night skiing continuing on select runs from 4 to 8:30 p.m.

A bonfire begins at 4:30 p.m. and the annual torchlight descent at 9 p.m. Fireworks are set for 9:15 p.m.
