Also, by turning in this roster list after you arrive, with complete and legible names & addresses, you will receive 2 FREE one-day lift tickets for use on a return visit the same ski season!
The Group Reservation Form can be filled out and sent with your deposit and the trip becomes closer, our Group Planning Worksheet is available and can help you determine amount of money needed when you arrive at Swiss Valley. Request the Group Planning Worksheet by emailing LindaSue@SkiSwissValley.com. Payment should be made in the form of cash, credit card or ONE check. (Please avoid individual checks payable to Swiss Valley from group members if possible.) Your deposit will be deducted from your total due.
The Group Leader will need to leave their driver’s license as a deposit for rental equipment. Be sure to bring it with you to the office when you check in.
Group Planning Tips
What to wear?
Some members of your group may be packing for a winter ski trip for the very first time. Dressing in layers is the most practical approach, as they can be removed or added to compensate for changing weather conditions. We suggest leather gloves or mittens. Rope tows are particularly hard on woolen or vinyl-type mittens and may ruined before the day is over.*
If you are planning on an overnight or weekend trip, it is strongly recommended that you make your lodging reservations as soon as you know your ski date. Use our Area Lodging information to assist you.
Ski & Snowboard Lessons
All group members are eligible for a FREE “Never Ever” Skied Before group beginner ski or snowboard lesson. We suggest ALL beginning skiers/snowboarders take advantage of this offer as it will encourage their progress and help eliminate common beginner errors. Intermediate and advanced lessons may be purchased at the Snowsports Desk upon arrival.
Why not consider our Valley Kids Program for the day of your visit? Valley Kids, our children’s learn to ski & snowboard program offers the best initial experience for children and creates more relaxed parents!
Plan your meals in advance.
Our Cafe’ 225 serves a variety of affordable menu items, including breakfast on weekends. Restaurant style food and drink is available in our Chalet . You are welcome to bring sack lunches; however no appliances (crock pots, coffee pots, etc) allowed in the Cafe’ 225.
