Drones & Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Out of safety concerns for guests, employees, and resort property, Hidden Valley, Inc. prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or aerial drones, by the general public, including recreational users and hobbyists, without prior written authorization from the Resort.  This prohibition includes drones for filming or videotaping, as well as any drone use by media or journalists operating over all Resort properties.   This prohibition on drone operations or use extends to any drones launched or operated from Resort property, as well as drones launched from private property outside of the Resort boundaries.  Please contact a resort representative if you have any questions or if you seek prior-authorization to operate any UAS and/or aerial drones.  Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by Federal Aviation Administration rules and regulations, local law enforcement, and/or U.S. Forest Service rules, as well as those policies separately established by our Resort, which may include certification, training, insurance coverages, indemnification requirements, and waivers or releases of liability.  Any violation of this policy may involve suspension of your skiing privileges, or the revocation of your season pass, as well as confiscation of any equipment, and may subject violators to any damages, including but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy and/or physical or personal injuries, or regulatory fines and legal fees.

Please contact the resort General Manager, 636-938-5373 or skihv@skihv.com if you have any questions.
