Paoli Peaks however, located in the Hoosier State's southern hills between Indianapolis and Louisville, Ky., is like an oasis in the winter for snow-starved skiers and snowboarders. The ski area offers a little over 300-feet of vertical and good skiing and riding terrain for the lower Midwest. The area is open daily throughout the winter until 9 or 10 p.m. and sprinkle in a few Midnight Madness sessions over the course of the season.
Paoli more than makes up for natural snowfall with an arsenal of snowguns. It's often the only snow covered hill in the area. The parking lot can be void of snow. Walk through the day lodge to get to the slopes, and it's instant winter; kind of like a white Wally World.
