Hidden valley race club

Hidden Valley Resort
Hidden Valley, PA

As a club, we encourage participation, development of fundamental ski skills, alpine racing skills, and above all, an enjoyable experience.

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.

We are fortunate to have coaches with a wealth of teaching and racing experience at the U10 – 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
