Snow fun at Paoli Peaks

Get out in the white stuff at Paoli Peaks


You can rent your equipment right there at the Paoli Pro Shop. $29 covers everything you need.

Ski and snowboard lessons are available in a variety of formats, including group lessons for those 7 years and up based on age and ability. Private lessons or semi-private lessons that accommodate families are also options. Three-hour kid-specific lessons for skiing or snowboarding for youngsters 5 to 12 years of age are available, too.

“We call them Snow Monsters,” said Grenier. “It really gives kids a chance to learn and practice what they’re learning.”


When you’re not flying through the snow, you can hang out in the lodge, which happens to be at the top, not the bottom of the hill. Grenier said that Paoli Peaks is one of just a few such “inverted” arrangements in the country.

The lodge is where you’ll find the fix for the appetite you worked up out on the slopes.

“I feel like we offer everything under the sun,” said Grenier of their casual, cafeteria-style restaurant. “We make our own pizza.” Although the pizza’s a specialty, there’s tons of options from hamburgers to Philly stakes, deli sandwiches, salads and soups. “Even a picky eater should be able to eat at our restaurant.”


Back out in the snow, Paoli Peaks has another fun snow option – tubing. The tubing area has its own lodge with concessions and its own parking area.

“That’s perfect for everyone – no skills required,” said Grenier. $25 buys a three-hour session including the tube, use of the lanes and the rides up on the carpet. There’s up to nine lanes, each 700 feet long.

Stay over

While Paoli Peaks is a day lodge, turn it into a weekend or more by staying nearby at any of a number of accommodations. There are several that partner with Paoli Peaks to offer packaging options or discount coupons to their overnight guests.
