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!
