Hidden Valley manager Bill Brandes would like Eureka-Wildwood Patch readers to know the team at the ski resort proactively seeks out any potential illegal behavior, such as the marijuana violations reflected in this police log. In fact, he said their own security officers and ski patrol employees let him know of any suspicious activities, and he calls in Wildwood police officers, who he said have been very cooperative. He said Hidden Valley team members do their due diligence, and proactively enforce the law. In fact, he said they contacted police about these specific violations. "We do not condone illegal behavior, and will not tolerate it on our property," he said today. From an overall perspective, he said there have only been about four unfortunate incidences among the 26,646 visitors who have enjoyed Hidden Valley already during this new winter season that began Dec. 23. He said they've had an average daily attendance of 1,567, so the vast majority of skiers, snowboarders and snow tubers are fine. "We crack down on those who are not," he said. "Once police confirm a drug violation or underage drinking, Hidden Valley passes are removed for the entire season if they are pass holders. If they are not season pass holders, they are banned from the property for the remaining portion of the season."

Bill Brandes and his employees do a wonderful job at Hidden Valley and they are doing every thing possible to keep all of the visitors safe at the resort. As a grand parent I feel that all of my grand kids that go skiing at Hidden Valley are in a very safe place as stated in Julie Pattons article above. GREAT JOB BILL
