About fifteen years ago my older brother had taken me to swain to learn how to ski,at first i was a little scared but it was one of the best times of my life once i got the hang of it. We resided in Belmont,n.y.so it was'nt to far to get to.Now i live in Jamestown,n.y.and live a pretty busy life but always take time to enjoy winter activities like skiing . Swain made my learning experience most enjoyable with the wide variety of runs/trails and friendly environment. I would love to visit your slopes again in the near future,one of the best !!!
