Paoli Peaks Hopes To Open This Week Pending Weather

Paoli Peaks had to postpone its opening because of the warm weather.

Paoli Peaks is planning to open as scheduled despite the warm weather for mid-December.

Paoli Peaks creates manufactured snow but the snow machines still need colder overnight temperatures if they are going to make enough snow to get the slopes up and running by Saturday.

Lauren Grenier, director of administration at Paoli Peaks, says the next few nights will be critical in Southern Indiana.

“Within a few days if we have optimal snow-making conditions, in 3-4 days, we could have this facility open, maybe not fully operational with all of our slopes going, but definitely enough,” she says.

Ideally, Grenier says, they need overnight temperatures in the upper teens, instead of the lower 20‘s, which is what‘s anticipated this week.

Last year, the warm weather delayed Paoli Peaks’ opening until early January.
