Bless their hearts from trying, but the Ohio Valley near Cincinnati is basically a southern climate. And I really doubt the reported vertical drop. The snow is HORRIBLE. What's manufactured -- approx. 100% with a rare and random 1/2" accumulation preceded and followed by rain, is alternately sticky and icy. As the only option until you get to MI, WV or NY, Perfect North gets crowded with young, novice, clueless and drunken skiers, a condition not helped by the long, late hours. Expect ice, lift lines, poling, nitwits running out of control across your skis or into your body. Every year PN disappoints. Again, not really fault of the operators, but a 250 ft. hill of crowed ice is more like hockey that downhill.
