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! ... Full Review

I grew skiing New Mexico/Colorado and while there is no comparison it is still nice to have a fun little hill close to home for some quick turns. People complaining about the ice or small hills must have forgotten that they were in Missouri and that all of the snow is man made. They do a good job of keeping the trails groomed and the terrain parks in shape. Only down side is the cost of lift tickets which is 50 or so bucks but they do have discount days and nights. Speaking of nights the whole area is lit up at night so you can ski up until 1am. Is this Breck? No but its not bad for what was once a golf course either. ... Full Review

If you can ski/board here you can do it anywhere! I have for years poo pooed mid-western glacier skiing. This year I shelved my bias and visited Hidden Valley. I had a great time! Timing was paramount...it had been cold for a week; then warmed up. The snow guns were off. The snow was good. My wife was flying into STL. I had the weekday off and the afternoon to kill. Hidden Valley was better than Paoli Peaks. Boarding is fun even close to home. Having fun is better than dreaming of having fun. The smaller hills were good for training on. I will visit again....with an eye on the weather! ... Full Review

Recently I fell skiing and dislocated my shoulder. The Hidden Valley ski patrol was outstanding. They were very helpful and did a fantastic job securing me to get me to the ambulance. I appreciate all of you, especially Nick koonz (nice ride!!!) You all are the best. Thank you again.... Full Review
