What began as a mom and pop restaurant and country inn back in 1949 soon became the base location for a new ski area known as Hidden Valley. A rope tow and two slopes would accommodate a growing number of skiers from Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. Washington, DC developer Kettler Brothers bought out the property in 1983, adding terrain, lifts, and the other goods to compete in the still-growing Mid-Atlantic ski market. Primarily a family and learning ski area, the resort’s terrain is solidly beginner to lower intermediate, punctuated by wide, gentle cruising slopes and meticulous snowmaking and grooming. The resort has had its problems of late, such as understaffed resources, questionable service, and the migration of some of its regulars to re-opened Laurel Mountain. But the resort is working to fix these issues and get back on track. This eTrail contains a thorough description of the resort including driving directions, mountain statistics, trail profiles, extensive lodging & dining information, travel tips, and much more.

I spent many weekends at Hidden Valley when I was growing up. While not as big or busy as Seven Springs, Hidden Valley has an atmosphere that should appeal to families with children. Its big enough for the kids to be let loose on their own, but small enough that the parents will probably run into them a few times during the day. Hidden Valley is easy to access, just off of Route 31. It's main lodge doesn't have the hustle and bustle of other places, but that might be what you're looking for.
