Came here as a kid in the 1970's and 80's and learned to ski from the owner Jim and it served me well, being was able to ski throughout the USA as a result. Many upgrades since then and we thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit. The hills and facilities are great, keep in mind this is Michiana and not Colorado.... More

As first time skiers this was a great place to visit. Everyone was so helpful from the box office to the ski instructor. There was 6 of us in our party and everyone had a blast. I strongly recommend going here especially if it's your first time skiing!

THe waitress was friendly & attentive but food is below my standards of eating out! I can go to Gordon foods & do the same! I recommend just socializing over... More

First time for my boys to go skiing. They loved it and are ready to go back. Swiss Valley is a great place to learn how to ski. Runs are not steep and fast. Lots of open area and a up hill at the end of the bunny slope in case you get out of control.

We went on New Years Day just a couple hours before closing. The snow was man made but still a blast for the kids, maybe even more so since it was freezing cold. Almost all the regular runs were going. We took two kids from Vietnam and they had a instructor who was great and very patient with them both.... More

We spent most of a day at Swiss Valley this past weekend. The staff at ticket window, lifts, cafeteria, etc. were all friendly, helpful, considerate and efficient, making the day there enjoyable. They have a very well run kids program called Valley Kids, which I prepaid and reserved online, and when I arrived at the lift ticket window I was... More

This place is not very big but it is a lot of fun. There is a cafeteria and a restaurant. We don't ski there as often as we did before our kids went to college but it is always a family friendly atmosphere.

We go often as it is a short drive. Great runs with several chair lifts. Something for everyone. The food is really good too!
