The cold weather and recent snowfall make for "phenomenal" conditions at a southern Indiana ski resort.
Paoli Peaks will open for the winter season Friday. The kick-off to skiing season comes just in time for students to visit during the holiday break.
The recreational skiing business started pumping out snow Wednesday in preparation of opening next weekend.
Paoli Peaks typically offers skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing each year from mid-December to mid-March.
The ski business closed temporarily because of weather conditions Monday.
Cold and snowy weather are the ideal conditions for a local ski resort.
It was a short season for ski resorts in Indiana. Paoli Peaks is closed and Perfect North Slopes has "suspended" its operations this season.
Paoli Peaks opened on New Year's Eve during their last ski season.
The popular Indiana skiing destination didn't open until New Year's Eve in 2014 because of warm weather.
Paoli Peaks originally planned to open December 13, but temperature prevented the slopes from making snow.
