This was the 2nd place I ever skied - Feb 2003...and I fell in love with skiing that weekend. My return trip this past Valentine's Day weekend affirmed all my positive memories of HV. First of all, HV won our business over Seven Springs in PA because they had better prices on lift tickets, equipment rental, and accommodations. There is a trail for EVERYONE here. There is a ton of ski-ready space and every trail is unique in width, grade, terrain features, and overall difficulty. This is THE BEST (and closest) resort for resident of non-skiing states in the Midwest to get away & ski for the weekend.
