If you truly love skiing you'd know that the best place to ski is where you're skiing that day. Hidden valley is a Midwest resort and doesn't try to be anything other than that. Having a place close to home is better than nothing.
They have alot of ice. Very bad conditions. The rental equipment is not good either. My first pair of boots had a latch broken which I gave to a employee. After that I found 6 more pairs until I found a good pair.That is not safe. Tables are not wiped down when people get up. We come here one time per year. They have really gone down hill from last year. To bad this used to be a fun and nice place to go.
