Hidden Valley Receives Final Approval For New ZipTour
Wildwood, Missouri – October 3, 2018 – Hidden Valley Ski Resort announced today that it has received final construction approval for the resort’s new ZipTour. Hidden Valley expects to begin construction shortly and expects operations will commence in the spring of 2019, after the upcoming 2018/2019 skiing and riding season.
Greg Gavrilets, General Manager of Hidden Valley Ski Resort, commented, “On behalf of the team at Hidden Valley Ski Resort and Peak Resorts, we are excited to add this unique amenity, which will greatly enhance our facility during the spring, summer and fall months. The addition of the ZipTour will be a welcome complement to our existing skiing, riding and tubing operations and we look forward to serving the local and regional community for years to come with our broad array of outdoor adventures.”
The new ZipTour will feature four separate spans across the breadth of Hidden Valley, allowing riders to zip from the main summit to West Mountain and from West Mountain to the valley. All four spans will include two lines to provide guests with the ability to race side-by-side or enjoy the views together. ZipTour adventures will include a ride up the Gateway lift to the summit where guests can access the second and fourth spans as well as get a view of the St. Louis skyline on a clear day. Visitors coming to experience the Hidden Valley ZipTour will also have access to the same base area amenities offered during the skiing and riding season, including the cafeteria, bar and retail shop.
