Hotel packages available for skiers. Winter RecreationYear-round resort and convention facilities; cross country skiing at nearby state park when there's natural snow in the area, which isn't often; snowboarding park with halfpipe and rentals; boardercross.
I visited Paoli Peaks last Wednesday for the first time. I found the entire ski area covered with good snow and no bare spots! There were no lines at the lifts being mid-week (a great time to go!) All of the staff I encountered were very friendly and courteous. Yes- the vertical is only 300 ft, but I was averaging over 10 runs an hour! I skiied over 4 hours and that was all my legs could safely take for one day- I'll be back next week. This is a great place to hone your skills before flying out to the Rockies! The only improvement I would make is to the quality of the food served at the snack bar. I applaud the owners for supporting the US Military with a great discount!
