Weekend Hours, Rates, Events and Added Terrain

Winter has finally arrived at Swiss Valley and the rest of Southwest Michigan. We are excited and hope you are too! Over 6″ of snow has fallen as of Thursday evening and looks like we could still get some more overnight. Snowmaking will fire up tonight as the temps arrive right around 8pm. We will be making snow area wide all night and into the day on Friday, and whenever temps allow! This should allow us to continually add more terrain as the weekend unfolds.

FRIDAY: We will have a delayed opening at NOON on Friday in order to groom out the snow we make overnight. We will be adding more terrain and lifts as the day goes on. We plan to open Friday with: Easy Over Rope Tows, Quad 83 Chair and Triple Chair Serving Easy Over 1, 2 & 3, Sandy’s Dandy, Swiss Miss & Triple. We will continue making snow on the entire Quad 80 side until the temps make us quit. We plan to open Quad 80 Chair sometime mid afternoon, hopefully by 2 or 3pm.

Friday Hours: 12:00pm – 9:00 pm
Lift Tickets: $42 Adult, $36 Junior

Saturday: We will open Saturday morning at 9:00am and close at 9:00 pm with all 3 chairs spinning and as many runs as we are able to open.

We anticipate public opening mid-morning for Sandy’s Dandy and around mid-day for Three Sisters. There will be live music in the chalet by Karly-n-Fred from 2pm to 5pm. Come in, have a meal, a drink and enjoy some tunes!

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!
