About the Ski Resort

The rich history of Hidden Valley's Otsego Club began in 1939 as the dream of Donald B. McLouth, president of McLouth Steel Company. Mr. McLouth, with a group of ski enthusiasts from Detroit, formed the Otsego Ski Club. The club's membership grew rapidly, and in 1947 an expansion and remodeling project that was to span 27 years was undertaken. Presently the complex is comprised of seven sleeping and recreational lodges, the historic Main Lodge, complete with elegant dining rooms, cozy lounges, huge stone fireplaces and executive conference facilities. The architecture is impeccably detailed in the Swiss Alpine design, making Hidden Valley the most picturesque resort of its kind, and one of the most beautiful spots in the country. The Otsego Club is currently maintained as a private club with memberships available, however, it is open to the public on weekends until Christmas and then again from March until the end of the season.
