What’s New for 2001: Hidden Valley Resort 3
Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

Pennsylvania’s Hidden Valley Resort will unveil a new Winter Fun Center this season, with snowtubing, cross country skiing, horse drawn sleigh rides, a learn to ski carousel for kids, and magic carpets. A new restaurant will also open.

Hidden Valley was the first resort to offer snow tubing in western Pennsylvania, and the new Winter Fun Center will offer the longest chutes on the east coast. Short, flat chutes will be available for little kids, with medium chutes available for the bigger ones. Daredevils will flock to a new “monster” chute. New snowmaking and lifts have been purchased for the new tubing hill.

The new Winter Fun Center will offer plenty of pursuits beyond downhill skiing.

“Our goal is to attract those who might not want to ski to come and have fun in our snow,” said Hidden Valley’s Jim Kett. “No need to sit inside all winter and watch football!” he added.

Hidden Valley has also been busy adding three new slopes to the downhill ski area. One of these slopes, an as-yet unnamed double black diamond, will be the most difficult slope at Hidden Valley.

I am hoping we get to go snow boarding next year. Maybe Grace won't get broken again! I hope she survives or at least makes it down the mountain!
