Hidden Valley offers more than 30 acres of ski terrain for all experience levels. The resort is also home to the Polar Plunge Tubing Park, which includes a 1,200-foot-long slope.
Snow Creek's ski and snowboard trails sit on a 300-foot vertical drop. Tornado Alley, the resort's tube park, includes a 700-foot-long slope with five tubing lanes.
Both resorts offer ski lessons, as well as discount prices for large groups, college students and military members.
