The Bottom Line:


Unlike most ski areas, novice skiers at Hidden Valley are not confined to a small area of the mountain. From the top of the mountain to the bottom, novice, intermediate, and advanced skiers will find trails to match their abilities at both the North Summit and Valley slopes. It isn't the most challenging skiing in the area, with black diamond runs being closer to intermediate level, but this small quaint resort is well worth the visit.
