LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. — This winter's snowfall totals have made things a pain for many, but it's made for the perfect season at Perfect North Slopes, who haven't had to use any snow-making machines for weeks.
"A lot of my friends have come multiple days since this season, so I've just been waiting," said Anna Kinasewitz, a skier who came to take advantage of the snow. "It feels like this past week with all the snow we've had, and time off school, it was a perfect day."
Alex Perfect, marketing operations leader for Perfect North, said it's also helped that temperatures recently have stayed below freezing. Last season, temperatures were more challenging for the slopes, rising to 60 degrees in December.
"This natural snow that has fallen has really made sure that we don't need to do as much work," said Pefect. "All we have to do is maintain it, clear it and get it ready for you skiers and snowboarders out there."
On Monday, Lawrenceburg received a mixed bag of weather, with both sleet and a total of six inches of snow hitting the area.
"As far as the snow surface goes, our snow groomers are able to mix it in and sort of blend it with the snow. We have to really improve conditions overall," said Perfect. "We've had an excellent winter and it's still going, even though there may be some warm temperatures in the forecast ahead. We're still going to have plenty of snow."
He's not wrong; there's a possibility Perfect North could see additional snow on Thursday. With the way the season is going, there's a possibility the business could stay open until mid-March.
