Hovland snowskate demo January 28th and 29th from 12PM – 4PM. Stop by the tent at the top of Quad 83 and learn about snowskates and take a demo out. This is a fun way to get out and enjoy the slopes if you are looking for something just a little bit different.

Operations Update – Open Monday – Wednesday 4pm – 9pm

We will be open today from 4pm-9pm with $25 Lift Tickets & $25 Rental, NO JUNIOR RATES.

Homeschool Special will be honored all evening. $38.00 for lift and rental for all homeschool students.

We will ski Easy Over, Sandy’s Dandy, Swiss Miss, Mountain Do, serviced by a tow rope, Quad 83 and our Triple Chair. We will also offer a Hike Park in the Ditch Terrain Park Area with 4 features set.

Conditions are marginal, frozen granular with potential thin spots. Snow is machine groomed, man-made snow. We did receive a little more than an inch of fresh snow that has mixed in nicely making for very skiable snow.

Snowmaking returns midweek, and we are looking forward to getting back to regular hours and a fully opened hill!

Mother Nature….Why? It’s supposed to be WINTER!!!!

As they say, if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute… Well, Mother Nature, we’ve been waiting, and waiting and waiting. What was an amazing weather start to the season, a blizzard, 20+ inches of snow, and amazing skier and boarder turn-out, turned into 4 days of rain, fog, and spring-like ski conditions, and AMAZING SKIER & BOARDER TURN-OUT!

First of all, Thank You to every one who has come out and skied with us for the last 8 days, it’s been great! Unfortunately, the weather has taken it’s toll on our snow and we have decided to suspend operations for Tuesday, January 3rd and Wednesday January 4th, 2023.

We are watching the weather and will determine opening status for Thursday as soon as possible. In addition, we are actively watching the weather for our next snowmaking window and plan a full assault on the hill. We will be ready to fire up our snowmaking system up as soon as the temperatures allow.

We look forward to skiing with you again very soon.

Rest up, do your snow dances, sacrifice some skis to ULLR, and get ready to join us on the slopes again very soon!

Look what Santa brought us, a new run!

That’s right, in the off season, Santa brought his elves to Swiss Valley for some off season training.
You see, the elves of the North Pole need materials for building all of the toys they deliver every year at Christmas. Santa knew that some of the best hardwoods come from southwestern Michigan, so he sent a few elves our way. Diligently selecting the perfect trees, these elves, got to work cutting brush and moving deadfall out of the way, sending many trees off to the North Pole for toy building material. Elf Jeff “Weezy”’drove the bulldozer and he and Elf Mike wielded chainsaws. Other elves saw what was happening and joined in, moving rocks and sticks, making it skiable. Elf Brooklynn particularly loves moving sticks (NOT).
What appeared after months of hard work was a clearing in the woods, just off the midpoint of Mountain Do. Elf Wheezy thought all the boys and girls would love to ski and snowboard through the trees and DEMANDED the area be opened for the fun of all! This new Black Diamond trail is called “Weezy’s Way” and winds through some gentle terrain, until taking a plunge out of the woods into the bottom of Mountain Do.
This new gladed ski run will operate during daylight hours and on natural snow for the 2022-23 season. Santa wants to caution all the thrill seekers that decide to play on this new run that natural obstacles exist and to take caution while enjoying themselves.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone from all of the elves at Swiss Valley! We can’t wait to ski with you on opening day!
