The good news is that winter appears to be here for awhile, and snowmaking conditions couldn't be much better. Ski areas across Ohio – Mad River, Alpine Valley, Snow Trails, Brandywine and Boston Mills – that were closed a little over a week ago are open again. Indiana's Perfect North Slopes experienced a fast turnaround according to co-owner Ellen Perfect. "Perfect North slopes made a quick rebound from only 8 ski runs and 10 tubing lanes open to 19 ski runs and 18 tubing lanes operating in only 3 days. Saturday January 20th marked a return to business as usual with thousands of skiers, boarder and tubers hitting the slopes." Get out and enjoy winter while it's here. Skiing and riding couldn't be better, and who knows how long it will last.
