I grew up skiing in the East, so I'm grateful to have a ski area in St. Louis, and I had a good time skiing there. But they need to step it up. I've been twice this winter and both times I had to wait over 30 minutes in the cold to get a pass after having paid for my ticket online. They only had one window open when there are five windows! I skied right after it had snowed two inches. Unlike any decent ski area, they don't sweep off the chairlifts - so you sit on snow - and then you're wet the rest of the day - had to go home early! Then they don't bother to remove GRAFFITI from the chairlifts. They you watch them make and blow snow into the woods off the trail. Hidden Valley is owned by Vail Resorts - and Vail Resorts needs to get some better management of this place!
