What can ya' say about Hidden Valley...hmm....
Well if you are coming for a good reason (fundraiser, family event) this is THE perfect place to go. It isn't really meant for anything else though. I couldn't imagine skiing here for leisure due the amount of terrain and little snow. I was here in Late March and was disappointed (well what can you expect from Jersey in March), they kept a lot open but all was extremely dangerously icy. If you don't mind crowds, Creek is your deal, if not this is the place to go. The lifts are slow but I usually deal with that by playing games on my phone - lol. The people here are all part of this "club" and hate when its busy so are sometimes very exclusive. Also, be sure NEVER to come during a race weekend - its packed with wannabe olympians wearing Italian ski helmets and tight suits that clog up the mountain. In summary, if its open and its a holiday weekend or something, here is the place to beat the crowds at Creek.
p.s. Great learning area with a exclusive area for learning (lift and all).
