Great place for newer skiers- like the fact there is a bowl where you meet everyone in the valley- and can arrange times to meet and keep skiing at your own pace! lift operators are amazing and funny... Full Review

The staff is friendly and works hard. They care for the old ski place, but it feels like the ownership doesn't. The equipment looks and feels old. The buildings are honestly in disrepair and ugly in the daylight. The lodge is straight out of the 70s and not very clean or attractive, the food is meh and the drinks are watered down. There is a tremendous amount of potential here, if the ownership would just step out of 1974. Zero summer activities, which is just a shame because this is the perfect place to have a summertime activities destination. Too bad.... Full Review

The Good: Very close to where I live, they have 2 for 1 deals on Saturday and lift plus rental deals on Sunday. Nice to go boarding/skiing after work for a few hours but not much beyond that. The ski shop has a good selection for such a small resort and the shop does good work. Lounge is nice and had good service better than some larger resorts. The Bad: This is not a destination resort it's small the runs are short and on weekend there are lots of beginners on the hill, and the lifts stop a lot, at the end of the night I've walked up the hill as it's faster waiting on the lift. The weather has not been kind to Swiss last few years.... Full Review

Closest place to get to from my location, north Central indiana. The place i learned to ski 20+ years ago, and then advance my snowboarding skills too. Been there dozens of times. However as a more advanced snowboarder with limited time each year to make it to a place to ride, very unlikely to go again , would rather drive 4 hours more for endless runs and 3+ times the run length. But still great memories at Swiss , and always good for the kids and learners!... Full Review

Visited Swiss Valley for the first time this past weekend. Disappointed at best. Beautiful day, sunny around 30 so we were expecting a bit of a crowd, but surprisingly not bad. We found out why. The runs were icy and not well groomed. The lift stops after loading every other person, these people could not figure out a lift chair but could ski just fine. Crowd seemed to consist of predominantly stuck up skiers. Would not recommend for snowboarders. The restaurant staff was rude and demanding. Most runs would be considered beginner level if not lower. The only steep thing about Swiss Valley is the price, $40. The longest run is 240 feet. Save your money, go to Bittersweet or Timber Ridge for the same price. ... Full Review

I have a special place in my heart for SV, as it's where I learned to ski as an adult. It is not especially challenging, but it's easy to get out on the hill, and small enough I can let my preteen ski on her own. It suffers from the Midwestern short runs long lines problem, but there's enough room and terrain to work on technique. Colorado, it is not, but it's close and friendly. No one is going to make you feel like a doofus when you fall down. They tend to open late, which is a bummer. ... Full Review

Really, this place is for beginners only. I would only recommend it for people who have not skied at all, or need to refresh or maybe those who just can't get out of the area. It's the worst place I've been to as far as facilities and terrain; and that's comparing to other poor places like raging buffalo, wilmot mountain, and Alpine Valley Wisconsin. ... Full Review
