Had a great time a paoli peaks really enjoy it, really friendly, nice people,and a great place to have fun in the snow.... Full Review
Good place for a beginner to figure out if skiing or snowboarding is right for them. Also a good place to get your legs back under you before you head out west. For a mid West/East coast hill, that's about all you can ask for. Equivalent to PNS or Sugar/Beech/Cataloochie. ... Full Review
Great for beginners. Intermediates through experts can enjoy the hill improving technical skills and getting ski legs before venturing to a major resort vacation. ... Full Review
I’ve ridden there for 26 years and this new management doesn’t know how to balances now making and grooming. I was there this weekend and the temps were perfect!! But everything was hard and crusty because they hadn’t groomed it at all. The new manager says it’s hard to groom when making so much snow. Oddly I worked there for over 10 years and we groomed daily, multiple times regardless of we had made or was making snow!! These current conditions are very dangerous to ride on!!... Full Review
We had a great time at Paoli Peaks. It is conveniently located 3 hours from Nashville and 1 hour from Louisville. The slopes are wide and vary in difficulty for all ability levels. They also have an awesome tubing park and ample free parking.
Also, the dining experience was outstanding! Without a reservation nor waiting we got a table by the fire place with a view to the slopes! So beautiful!
I would highly recommend to go there with your family!
PS: their home made pizza is a must try!

Let's face it: Paoli is not Vail, and we should adjust our skiing/snowboarding expectations accordingly. As a rather nervous snowboarder who dislikes both heights and speed, I'm perfectly fine with gentle hills around Paoli. I came to Paoli for my first outing of the season to sate my curiosity about the place, and to get my "ski legs" back after months away. It did that job just fine. Not all of the runs were open, but the ones that were posed very little degree of difficulty. Great for me!
For your après-ski needs, there's a snack bar in the lodge, plus a bar that's a bit quieter and features few local beers on tap.
Will I come back? 100% yes.
