The Paoli Peaks Ski Patrol is part of the National Ski Patrol System. It is a group of highly dedicated men and women who are trained to help injured skies and snowboarders and maintain a safe and controlled environment. The National Ski Patrol was started in 1939 by Minnie Dole who realized after a serious skiing injury of his own, the need for a service agency to render aid to skiers in need. The Paoli Peaks Ski Patrol consists primarily of volunteers who work with a small number of professional patrollers. If you are interested in becoming a Patroller and apart of the Paoli Peaks team, please click here. View Ski Patrol Brochure.
Paoli Peaks has over 110 Stationary towers & machines. Our high efficiency equipment pumps 6000 gallons of water per minute, or 12 inches of machine made snow over the entire ski area in a 24-hour period at temperatures of 20 degrees Fahrenheit. To open for the season with a good base of snow, the weather needs to be consistently cold for about 2 weeks. During those 2 weeks, as long as the temps are below freezing, our snow making machines are blowing snow nonstop. Once we have our base, the doors are ready to open...and stay open even when temps reach the 40's and 50's during the day.
Lodging & Accommodations
Paoli Peaks is a Day Lodge only, which means we do not have accommodations available; However, there are over 1,000 rooms within a half hour drive: Condominiums next to the slopes, B&B’s, cabins, motels, and resort hotels. (See our Lodgings page for Super Saver Midweek Packages)
