audio snow report

Thank you for your support this season. It was a roller coaster with the unstable weather patterns we experienced all winter. We tried week after week to provide you with the best snow possible! Sadly, Perfect North Slopes is now closed for the 2016/17 Season. Spring has arrived with warm temperatures and plenty of rain. The snow has taken a beating and this last storm wash...


Thank you to our guests and staff for another great winter season!

Our goal is to help you discover the fun of sliding on the snow, learning to control your speed and making those first turns through terrain-based teaching techniques. Take advantage of our First Time Ski/Snowboard Lesson for a great day on the slopes. Lessons are 50 minutes long, taught on the hour, for ages 4 and up.
