Hidden Valley Ski Resort in Rocky Mountain National Park used to be a very popular ski resort from 1955 until 1991 when it was closed by the national park to try to get it back to its natural beauty. Reading and listening to stories about the old ski area is like going back in time to the old T-Bars and chair lifts. It was a hopping place back then.
Today it is used as a sledding and tubing hill in the winter. If you feel adventurous you can hike up and ski down one of the many old trails or try some snowshowing. We’ve done both of them a few times. It’s lots of fun but what a workout!
In the summer you can hike the many trails or or ski slopes up to Trail Ridge Road. It’s a beautiful place for a hike, whether it be long or short. Near the bottom there are many picnic tables to eat at while you enjoy the spectacular views. It’s a geat place to visit either in summer and winter.
