So, anyone been there before? Fill me in! You love it, hate it? FINALLY, officially decided I'm going there March 5th-7th. Anyone going there?

It's a tiny fucking hill. Get on their website, look at their trailmap, I guarantee there is nothing you can miss with a quick glance at it.

How bad can it be with a name like Perfect North Slopes? It can't be much worse than the tiny little hills I ride in PA and you can have fun anywhere really.

PN is not bad for Indiana terrain, but the crowds are insane. I've spent 15 minutes in line there to ride for 30 seconds up the hill. It's really bad on weekdays, but weekends are hopeless.

Paoli Peaks is just about as good, but the lines are half as long. I'd recommend going there instead if it's an option.

I really hope that the lines aren't insane.. But that's the place that we are going I'm pretty sure. I will try and suggest otherwise. D:

Starting to see more Kentucky snowboarders on here, that is good thing.

Perfect north is all right....it is not a mountain though, it has a 400 vertical foot drop and it is the best place with in a two hour drive of Louisville.

I ran into PA snowboarders in Telluride...they were telling me that here hills had 1600 foot vertical drop..PN has 400 vertical drop...so perfect north is considerably smaller than the stuff in PA.

Wow, that sounds pretty intense. 1600ft, ahhh. I was gunna go to PA - but not this time, maybe when I'm more experienced. Where do you normally go?

@Mal: I'll do you in the butt on the slope sat.

Perfect North is nice but its so busy there.. be prepared to wait about 10-15 min probably to get on the lift.. But then again. its going to be in the upper 50s there this weekend so the snow will be starting to melt and it will be pretty slushy and might not bring out a big crowd..

This might be the first time in history anyone has ever said this, I wish I could snowboard in Indiana. I am curious to see what it is like. But I complain enough driving 2 hours to ride the tiny mountains of PA.
