Just an update to last years review. Swiss continues to be a great place to visit from Northern IN. I love the atmosphere - everyone is friendly even the visitors. The facilities are clean and the equimpment functions well- my only complaint is the tow rope in the begginner area. Small children who have never skiied struggle with it. However if your kids are getting lessons I noticed that the staff is very good about helping the kids up the hill. For older kids and adults I highly recommend bringing either an old pair of gloves or a pair of work gloves if you will be riding the tow rope. It is very hard on gloves. Not a lot of terrain but you would have to go several more hours north to get much better. Ratings based on southern MI.
