Ski Hidden Valley Estes Park, a feature-length documentary film seeks to tell the past, present, and future of the Hidden Valley ski area just above Estes Park, Colorado, in Rocky Mountain National Park. For over sixty years, this was a viable ski resort close to population centers of the Front Range and travel destinations of the Midwestern United States.
The Hurt Family ran the first ski area concession from 1947 – 1954. The James Family was the concessionaire from 1955 – 1975. Then, the local Recreation District operated the area until 1991.
In 1992, the Park Service took out the lifts at the resort, and eventually razed the buildings and infrastructure that comprised the ski area. It is still possible to backcountry ski and board along the old runs at Hidden Valley, but most of the public opts to use the sledding hill, the only authorized snowplay area in the Park.
This film Premiered on July 6, 2013, at the Estes Park Conference Center to a sold out crowd. We’re presently selling DVDs of the film online, and are seeking out retailers to carry the film. We’re also submitting it to film festivals.
For the film, we interviewed almost FIFTY former and current skiers of Hidden Valley, former employees and Park officials, historians, and experts. We have also amassed around 2,500 feet of motion picture film, and over 500 slides, photos, maps, badges, artifacts, and memorabilia.
