Where are we going today?

There's nothing quite like that feeling of trying to stand on your feet when you first hit the snow, and practicing and practicing, then - you got it!  It's like riding a bike, once you pick it up there's not stopping you!

Paoli Peaks is perfect for the whole family to spend some time over the winter months.  You can try alpine skiing, snowboarding and even snow tubing!

There is 45,000 ft of modern ski and snowboard equipment, as well as cafe-style restaurants, coffee shops and rentals.  It's a whole mini ski world!

The Snow Tubing facility is separate to the Ski lodge, with its own seating, concession stand and tubing lanes - but it has just the same amount of fun!

If you have never tried snow tubing, then you must make sure you remember the first time you start sliding down those slopes!  All ages and abilities can do it, as you zoom down the snow covered slopes like you are on a magic winter wonderland carpet!  You can also ride the real escalator back to the top so you can do it all again without having to climb!

Don't worry if you have never taken to the slopes before.  The friendly staff will help you every step of the way - from what type of tickets to buy, to what slopes you should be using.  It's also never too late to learn how to ski, so you can always take a group lesson or the Discovery for Beginners lesson, where you can work at your own pace around a course until you have mastered every element. 

It's snow time!

    I was there last year and the snow was soooo hard. When I fell there was not soft landing at all but there was no lines and the food and staff were great!

    I've been part of the Ski / Snowboard Club at Trinity High School in Louisville, KY for three years. We go to Paoli the seven weeks after new years (every Friday) and I can honestly say I've enjoyed every experience up there. Paoli Staff are very friendly; always willing to help beginners. Food is great but very over-priced. Rental is decent. Slopes aren't usually crowded at all -- BEST PART! No lines at ski lift, which is great for bringing groups of friends. I like the Walnut Alley trail the best. One of the best Midwest Ski Slopes.

    Anyone who says that they didn't have a good time at Paoli Peaks is either allergic to fun or was purposefully trying not to enjoy their trip. I have been snowboarding off/on at Paoli since 1999. While their main lodge is somewhat outdated they have made some strides to modernize their facility. The service I have received there has always been impeccable! While I have never been to the tubing hill, the lift attendants, folks working in their food services, ticket takers, pro shop staff, etc are all super friendly and willing to help.

    -The staff members, as a general rule, are the best feature at Paoli. The slopes are as good as any that you can expect for the Midwest (Compare- Northstar, Mad River, Snow trails). Several times the staff has gone out of their way to be accommodating with discounts, kids rental equipment issues, and special kids lessons. That stuff goes a long way.
    -The price is competitive with the others, although I feel that they all are over priced. But, money must be made I guess. However, the Monday "Home school" deal cannot be beaten.

I even had the unfortunate need to meet their on-site medical staff (brother broke his collar bone) and they were also incredible people. If you are looking to ski/board in the midwest (meaning short runs, man-made snow, little elevation, etc.) Paoli is an awesome option. Every time I'm even relatively close I make it a point to head up for a day. If you have youth groups or want to try something completely different, head up for midnight madness... you won't regret it!

-The facilities are adequate, a good cafeteria, with a fire place. Plenty of changing space and lockers. The parking lot is a little rough and tends to get muddy. But, the bathrooms are not good at all-fowl smell, not clean, baskets for gear are few and sketchy at best.
-A nice feature is that the lodge is at the top of the hill, so no standing in line for the first run.

So, now go and Shred the Gnar!
