Welcome to Hidden Valley Race Club
The Hidden Valley Race Club, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization was formed to create a fun environment that produces solid skiing fundamentals and develops ski racers to the level of competition that they desire. We celebrate competition in addition to results in a team atmosphere.
The Club practices most weekends ( see event schedule) and has midweek practices for racers that want to compete at a regional level by attending USSA Races. 65% percent of club members participate just at Hidden Valley Resort by attending weekend practices and competing in the Open Cup series which consist of 5 races held at Hidden Valley. 35% of the Club members participate in USSA sanctioned races that are held throughout the region.
As a club, we encourage participation, development of fundamental ski skills, alpine racing skills, and above all, an enjoyable experience.
We are fortunate to have coaches with a wealth of teaching and racing experience at the U8 – U21 levels. Our coaches are dedicated to teaching skiing, racing and athletic techniques. Whether racing competitively or just practicing with the club, racers and parents will enjoy good skiing and companionship.

We also require that our members become members of USSA (United States Ski and Snowboard Association), which costs $90 – $150 depending on competition level, and of PARA (Pennsylvania Alpine Racing), which is included in the USSA fee. HVRC dues this year are outlined below.
375.00 Membership Dues; this applies to all members. The fee goes to pay for our facilities, training equipment, and instructional fees
100.00 Wednesdays/Friday Night Practice Fee; this ONLY applies to Racers that plan to practice with the Team on Wednesday/Friday nights and is limited to racers that will be participating in away USSA travel races. This fee was added this year to help defer the extra expense of midweek coaching
