As the winter season approaches, ski enthusiasts in Missouri are eagerly anticipating the start of ski season. Several ski resorts near Kansas City and St. Louis are gearing up for the upcoming season, including Hidden Valley Ski Resort in Wildwood.
Tony Santora, the general manager of Hidden Valley Ski Resort, has been preparing the resort for the upcoming season. He has spent the summer getting the resort ready and ensuring that all necessary inspections have been completed. Santora explained that they make all the snow that skiers use and that it takes about four days of continuous snowmaking for them to make enough snow to open.
The snowmaking process at Hidden Valley Ski Resort depends on a wet bulb temperature to determine when they are able to make snow. As they prepare to open for the season, the staff is being brought on, and beginners can also take advantage of lessons offered at the resort. With skiing, snow tubing, snowboarding, and lessons for beginners, there is something for everyone to enjoy at these Missouri ski resorts.
As winter approaches and temperatures drop, many people head to these ski resorts to hit the slopes or enjoy other winter activities. The anticipation is building as these resorts make final preparations for the winter season.
