As winter approaches, the ski season is almost upon us in Missouri. Several ski resorts are located near Kansas City and St. Louis, including Hidden Valley Ski Resort in Wildwood. General manager Tony Santora has been preparing the resort for the upcoming season and has spent the summer getting it ready for inspection.
Santora explained that they make all the snow that skiers use at Hidden Valley Ski Resort, and it takes about four days of continuous snowmaking to make enough snow to open. The snowmaking process relies on a wet bulb temperature to determine when they can make snow. As they prepare to open for the season, staff members are being brought on board, and beginners can 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.
