Hidden Valley Foundation Community

Full Closure of Foundation Office

Dear Homeowners & Residents,

Per Governor Wolf's order to close all non-essential, non-life-sustaining businesses, effective today, March 20, 2020, Hidden Valley Foundation's office facilities must close and staff must stay home until further notice.

To respect the mandated order to close, our business practices are changing as follows:

  • Security will maintain normal services, patrolling 24/7 and responding to any/all emergencies. Should you experience an emergency or need immediate assistance, please call our Allied Universal security team at (814) 233-7056.
  • Calls to the Foundation Office will not be answered directly, but we will try to return calls within 48 hours as conditions permit. We ask that you limit calls to items that are of an emergency nature. Please understand that all activities at Hidden Valley have been cancelled and that the same conditions exist in our community that currently exist throughout Pennsylvania and this country.
  • The FirstService Residential Call Center is currently operating. 
  • Management will continue to survey the community and Maintenance will be on-call to handle emergency or urgent maintenance matters.
  • Homeowners should make arrangements directly with contractors, vendors, renters, and guests to gain access to their units. Keys that are on file at the Foundation Office will not be available to contractors, vendors, renters, or guests and therefore, homeowners should make alternate arrangements for access to their property by others. 
    • The Security Team will issue keys in the event of an actual emergency. Please note: keys for regular construction projects, previously scheduled work, renters, guests, etc., are not considered emergency uses.
  • All meetings, events, and regular services are cancelled until further notice.

While we continue to navigate our way through these challenging times, Hidden Valley Foundation will remain vigilant in monitoring the status of the Coronavirus, so that we can continue to modify our practices (if needed) and communicate with our homeowners and residents. Management and the Board of Directors continue to work remotely to handle any emergency that may develop. The Executive Director and all members of the Board will accept emails from residents, that can be found in the Hidden Valley directory on the Foundation website. We will post all relevant Notices and Updates on the Foundation website so that all of our homeowners and community members have the information as it is received by s and as decisions are made that may impact the community.

We are grateful for the community that we service and our homeowners and residents for your continued commitment to the health and safety of one another and the staff.

Farmer's Almanac or Punxsatawney Phil?

How accurate is the Farmer's Almanac? Every year in the Fall, we share the Farmer's Almanac's long-range weather forecast for the upcoming Winter. This past September, the Farmer's Almanac made the following prediction.
However, a description to their 2019-2020 Winter Outlook visual painted a much different picture. Overall, the Farmer's Almanac predicted that Winter in the Northeast region of the Country was expected to be bitterly cold for much of the season. More specifically, the Laurel Highlands fell in the blended areas of "Frosty, Wet & White" and "Frozen, Snowy." The Farmer's Almanac raised our hopes further by predicting above-normal snowfall amounts for our region. 

Month after month we waited anxiously for the above-normal snowfall to arrive and month after month, we were left disappointed. Then, to add insult to injury, Punxsatawney Phil comes along on February 2nd and breaks the news that we should expect an early Spring.

So, just how accurate is the Farmer's Almanac? According to their website, the Farmer's Almanac claims to correctly predict the weather forecast 80% to 85% of the time. While they definitely predicted that this Winter was going to be one where the thermometer was constantly rising and falling in extremes, the Farmer's Almanac didn't perform as well in their prediction for snowfall amounts. In our opinion, this Winter was anything but "frozen, snowy" or "frosty, wet & white." To be fair, this could have resulted from an unexpected shift in weather patterns, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately for the Farmer's Almanac, Punxsatawney Phil is still the winner of this past Winter's prediction.

Looking ahead, what is the Farmer's Almanac predicted for the long-range Spring forecast?
According to the Farmer's Almanac, Spring will officially begin on March 19, 2020 at 11:50 PM, which will be the earliest the Spring equinox has arrived in 124 years. However, we should expect occasional wet snow and chilly temperatures to stick around in our region until April.

TESTIMONIALS

See What Our Homeowners & Guests are Saying

We just bought a place at Hidden Valley and couldn't be more thrilled! Our neighbors are wonderful- it's a very family friendly atmosphere at the resort and we can't wait for ski season to begin. We love the resort year-round! Come to the mountains!
Great little resort/residential community. Grounds are well-maintained all year and every season offers something different to appreciate with the changing weather and scenery.
Stayed in a condo at Summit Village and it was great! Luxurious jacuzzi bathtub with full kitchen and large living room.
What a great Summer escape! We stayed in a townhouse. I sat on the deck and read book after book while my teenage daughter and her friends walked to the pool and tennis courts. There are plenty of activities within a short drive. We enjoyed a hike in Forbes State Forest. I also enjoyed walking along the paths around the resort in the morning and on the golf course in the evening. The accommodations were comfortable... We'll be back!
We stayed in a nice place on Kepple Lane at the top of the mountain. It was a perfect place to have alittle 2 night weekend getaway with a few friends. The weather was great and the trails were fantastic. We will definitely go back!
Friends own a condo up here, pretty place to visit! Nice and quiet...
