Swiss Valley far exceeded our expectations. The service there is awesome! Trish taught both our kids to ski (one we thought might never get off the bunny slope and was doing jumps by end of day one). I cannot say enough! Great experience!

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...More
