Hidden Valley is a year-round resort nestled in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, offering activities ranging from downhill skiing to golf. The resort’s facilities include a full-service spa, an 18-hole golf course, an 80-room hotel, an indoor pool, and a conference center. Unlike other “day resorts” in the D.C. area, Hidden Valley was designed as a destination resort, offering housing ranging from condominiums to luxurious single-family homes. Hidden Valley’s residential communities serve as first- and second-homes for people who have quickly learned to love the solitude and scenery of the resort.

During the winter, Hidden Valley offers downhill skiing and a snow tubing hill. Hidden Valley receives healthy amounts of natural snow each year, but also relies on machine-made snow from an arsenal of state-of-the-art, efficient snowguns. The resort has gained a reputation as a family-friendly ski area, with a patient ski school, forgiving slopes, and careful grooming.

Snow conditions at Hidden Valley will generally be better than conditions at resorts closer to D.C. Most of Hidden Valley’s slopes are also lit for night skiing.

In 2013, Hidden Valley was purchased by nearby Seven Springs Mountain Resort.
