Thank you for calling Swiss Valley, Ski ya 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!

SNOWMAKING HAS BEGUN!!!!!

What does it take to open a ski area? SNOW. What are we making? SNOW!!! We fired up our new and improved snowmaking system on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM. Pushing more water at a higher pressure is really paying off. Our older snow guns are doing better, and our NEW snowguns are absolutely HAMMERING it!

The weather is cooperating and it appears we will continue for at least the next 20 hours or so until we have to take a short break to wait for more cold air to work its way in.

BTW, have you seen the forecast? We are under a SEVERE WINTER WARNING with several inches to over a foot of snow expected by opening day….We couldn’t ask for anything better.

Ski you FRIDAY DECEMBER 23rd at 9:00 AM!
