Pennsylvania’s Hidden Valley Resort has been refreshed with multiple enhancements and beautification projects over the past summer.
Like its sister resort Seven Springs, Hidden Valley will unveil a new learning program for first-time adults and children. Skiers and boarders will immediately begin to experience concepts such as range of motion, balance, edge pressure, steering, traversing, and turn initiation, thanks to the contours of a controlled learning area.
The results of Hidden Valley’s extensive mountain beautification program should be evident across the resort. On-mountain buildings such as lift operator structures have been repaired and repainted, and existing glade areas have been reclaimed. New lift corrals were installed at all chairlifts, and new trail maps and directional signs have been placed strategically across the mountain. Slope and trail names have been streamlined, returning some areas to the original names established by the Parke family, which founded the resort. With this streamlining, Hidden Valley’s trail count reverts to 25, with two terrain parks.
The Hidden Valley Ski Lodge has been refreshed, including a complete renovation of the Ski and Snowboard shop. Hidden Valley is also unveiling a new Rossignol junior ski equipment lease program, which will enable children to receive properly fitted Rossignol skis, bindings, boots and poles for one flat seasonal fee.
An upgraded drop-off area at the lodge will result in improved traffic flow. Some restrooms in the Lodge have also been expanded and remodeled.
Adding to Hidden Valley’s impressive fleet of state-of-the-art automated snowguns, the resort has installed five Techno-Alpin stick guns to the Voyager slope.
