As winter draws near, ski season is almost upon us. Missouri is home to several ski resorts, including Hidden Valley Ski Resort in Wildwood, which is preparing for the upcoming season. Tony Santora, the general manager of the resort, has been working tirelessly to get the resort ready for the winter months.
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. He described the snowmaking process, which involves using a wet bulb temperature to determine when they can make snow. As they prepare for the opening of the season, staff members are being brought on board and beginners can also take advantage of lessons offered at the resort.
The winter season is an exciting time for ski enthusiasts and resorts like Hidden Valley are gearing up for the start of ski season. With skiing, snow tubing, snowboarding and lessons for beginners there is something for everyone to enjoy at these Missouri ski resorts. The anticipation is building as these resorts make final preparations for the winter season.
