Details

Hidden Valley has a good variety of descents viewable from left to right from the parking area.

How to Get There

You can find good skiing within a 1-2 mile approach.  This area is fairly well traveled and a skin track will often already exist.  

Begin your skin straight out of the parking lot.  You will quickly pass a sledding and tubing area on the left before the approach to increase in angle. 

In about a third of a mile, the trail breaks into an intersection.  Head left to take the Aspen trail.  This will take you all the way to Trail Ridge Road.  If you continue on, you will stay on Columbine trail.

At about a mile from the parking lot, you will cross Trail Ridge Road.  Continue up and onward if you want to ski the the Main Slope.
