Swiss Valley set to open for the season

Swiss Valley Ski & Snowboard Area is finally set to open for the season.

The Jones, Michigan, ski resort is set to open Thursday at 3 p.m.

Swiss Valley's owners say they normally count on healthy revenue from kids and families buying lift tickets during the holidays, but warm temperatures throughout December kept them from being able to open.

Last year, Swiss Valley opened on January 2.
