How Do I Get to Perfect North Slopes?

Although Dearborn County is bordered by the great Ohio River, we don’t really recommend trying to canoe to your hotel when there are so many easy alternatives:

By car: Easy access from Interstates 275 and 74. The slopes and hotels are all less than a half hour from Cincinnati. Indianapolis and Louisville are about an hour-and-a-half drive.

By plane: Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is about 15 miles from Dearborn County.

As much as we all love being outdoors in the snow, whether we’re showing off our skills on the skis or making fools of ourselves tubing down the mountain, everyone sometimes wants to get inside and warm up or see the sights. Happily, Dearborn County has plenty of alternative activities:
