Perfect North Slopes Opens in November
LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (Scott Dimmich) -- All this cold weather is perfect for at least one thing, hitting the slopes.
Perfect North Slopes opened Friday afternoon for an early season bonus weekend. The operation in Dearborn County has been able to make a lot of snow during those frigid nights we had this week. Local 12 Meteorologist Scott Dimmich headed there to get a look.
It's not every year you can say you've been skiing in the tri-state in November. But skiers and snowboarders aren't waiting until December to shred some powder at perfect north slopes.
"I think there's only been a handful of times that we've opened in November."
"We've probably got 65 to 70 percent of our terrain covered with snow. Weve had a great cold snap and we're taking advantage of it."
Usually, no snow means no show. But our recent stretch of colder than average temperatures means an earlier than average start to snowcats, snowguns and ski lifts.
"We try to get open as soon as we can based on the weather. Obviously, the forecast this week has been great and wonderful for snow making. When we get open early, everybody loves that."
Even before the latest tumble in temperatures, Perfect North has been grooming more than just the slopes.
"I would say the two largest improvements our guests are going to see are the 8,000 square foot deck that's been completely rebuilt. We also have two brand new snow cats. Quite an investment which helps us get the hill ready and open. And make the conditions as great as possible."
Perfect North is looking to have more than just an early start to the season. They're working to give their customers a more perfect experience.
