Missouri Ski Resorts Gearing Up for Winter Season
Winter is just around the corner, which means ski season is fast approaching. Missouri is home to a couple of ski resorts near Kansas City and St. Louis, with one of the most popular being Hidden Valley Ski Resort in Wildwood.
Preparations at Hidden Valley Ski Resort
General Manager Tony Santora spoke with Missourinet about the preparations that took place over the summer to get the resort ready for the official opening. “This time of year is when everything kind of comes to a head, and we make sure that all that stuff has gotten done,” Santora said. “We get all of our inspections completed and ready to go. We start bringing on our staff for the season, and it’s kind of that culmination of all the work that has happened over the summer.”
Santora explained the snowmaking process, stating that the resort makes all the snow that skiers ski on. “It takes about four days of continuous snowmaking for us to make enough snow to get open,” he said. “We look for a wet bulb temperature, which is essentially an equation taking humidity and the temperature, and that tells us when we’re able to make snow.”
Activities and Lessons at Hidden Valley Ski Resort
In addition to skiing, the resort offers snow tubing and snowboarding, as well as lessons for beginners. With a range of activities available, there is something for everyone to enjoy at Hidden Valley Ski Resort this winter season.
