The Hidden Valley Chalet is maintained by the Ely Nordic Ski and Bike Club. In 2016 the chalet
underwent a major renovation which included a commercial kitchen, changing rooms, solar heat,
insulated windows and doors, upgraded lighting, new flooring, and wall coverings, and new tables and chairs. In 2020 a workout room equipped with ski ERGs and a waxing room was added. The chalet is available to club members via coded keyless entry. Most recently, a deck was added to the south exposure which provides additional meeting space and created a potential music stage. Our chalet is one of the finest venues on the Northeastern Minnesota ski circuit and a great place for special events year-round.
