no new lifts at Brighton .. because it the only resort in N.A. to have 100% hi speed/detachable lift access .. theyve talked about expanding off the backside of snake creek for years but traditionally the small sleepy town of Heber thats down in the valley has fought it.. however Heber has become the new Park City as far as living outside the city is concerned and as the amount of businesses rise you can bet added traffic will become more appealing to them

hidden valley, PA??
if so, head to 7springs if you can afford it. much better terrain and longer runs.

Hidden Valley near St. Louis. There's not really another option if you're in the St. Louis area and want to do a day trip, unfortunately.

Thought I was the only one 'till you mentioned Hidden Valley.

Apparently the next closest thing is somewhere in Iowa with 100 more vertical feet...according to some lady I talked to while on the lift last season.

November needs to hurry up and come

LMAO....if your talking about MT.(??)Crescent don't bother, not worth the trip. If they were to put in another lift they would have to either build another speed bump, or put one on top of the other

Midwest has to stick together, haha.

There's one near Kansas City, run by the same company. It's not really worth going to. On the other side of the Northside of the state of Illinois there is a place in Galena... it's better than Hidden Valley, especially it's park. But let's be honest, at the time it'd take to get there you might as well just go out west...

I don't forsee any new lifts coming in for a while here at Schweitzer, we got a couple new ones a few years back right before I moved here. There is definitely the room for more expansion, but with 2900 Skiable Acres and no lift lines EVER, It's gonna be a while. In the meantime I'll enjoy waiting my usual 10 seconds in line.

They're just getting to re-open Summit East. It's been closed from the washouts it had for a few seasons now. It will be nice to have it back open though.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
