It's been almost a perfect - pun intended - winter at [R318R, Perfect North Slopes], located in southeastern Indiana just a snowball's throw away from Cincinnati.  Good natural snowfall supplemented by lots of snowmaking has kept the slopes and trails in top condition all season. The skiing and riding has been great, and now Perfect is getting ready to celebrate the coming of spring with its annual Spring Carnival Sunday, March 7, preceded by a couple of high school late night specials.

The Spring Carnival will include lots of family events at the ski area and tubing hill.  A variety of activities will be taking place including the famed cardboard box races, the always popular slush pit run - Speedos optional - and the downhill dummy exhibition; that's the guy wearing Speedos.

Friday and Saturday night, Feb. 26-27, is the late night high school special.  The lights will be staying on until 1 a.m. both nights, and all you need is a valid high school ID to ski or ride from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. for $25.  You can get a lift ticket and ski or snowboard rental equipment for $40.  Snow tubing tickets for the same time period both nights will be $25.  Get out and enjoy one of the best seasons in recent years before it comes to an end.

Perfect North partners with a number of hotels/motels throughout the area - Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky - to offer lift and lodging packages.  Check them out through the link below.  Weekend packages start from $148 per night and include lift tickets.  Some even include a complimentary breakfast.
