PAOLI, Ind. (WDRB) -- It may be frigid outside, but the winter weather is great for snowboarders and skiers.

Paoli Peaks opened for business a few days ago, and snowbirds packed the slopes Wednesday. The cold weather makes it easier for crew members to make snow for the slopes, something last winter's mild weather made difficult.

"The last couple years have been a little rough on us, weather-wise," said Rick McMullen, General Manager of Paoli Peaks. "It's a huge battle when it stays warm in the middle of winter. You need the cold to be operating, but the forecast looks great for us, and we are just happy to be out there."

Paoli Peaks is now open seven days a week.
