The first three weeks of December brought zero snow along with temperatures that averaged 8-9 degrees above normal to southern Indiana. Coming off a mild winter last year, the prospects for upcoming ski season at Paoli Peaks Ski Resort were below peak level.
But three winter events since Christmas night along with abundant cold air has been a windfall for skiiers who travel from Dubois and Pike Counties over to the region's only skiing facility. High temperatures through Friday will be in the upper 20s/lower 30s. Temperates will fall into the 20s at night...perfect for skiing.
