Frigid air helps Indiana ski destination whiten its slopes

PAOLI, Ind. (AP) -

A southern Indiana ski destination that was hampered by early January rains and the task of making snow for its slopes is now open to skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts.

Spokeswoman Lauren Grenier says Paoli Peaks may have lost some visitors due to this winter's late opening and because of the time needed for its snow-machine machines to cover the slopes.

But she says the slopes about 70 miles northeast of Evansville are now snow-covered and groomed.

Grenier tells The Times-Mails (

The cold air arrived in time for college students who were home from college for winter break to visit the slopes with friends and family.
