Full review

Swiss is my home "mountain" so i've been riding there for the past 6 years. Mark does a great job with the space and snow he has for building the park. Rails are always smooth and the jumps are great this year. Swiss can get abit icy after 5pm, so keep that in mind, but its still a great place to spend the afternoon. Most of the locals are friendly but there are a large number of young kids if you come on a ski club night. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and aside from one drunk liftie, i've never had a problem there. Highly recommended based on its location in respect to mishawaka/south bend riders, but may not be exactly what your looking for if your used to bigger slopes.
