This will be interesting locally.
Paoli Peaks (PP) is a fairly inexpensive pass and they have even deeper discounts for students, military, and senior citizens. They also give deep discounts to the surrounding schools and colleges for everything from season passes to day trips/rentals/lessons. South Central Indiana isn't really booming right now.
PP has been running exceptionally lean for the past few years. It's also a VERY loose operation especially with the lifties, many of whom have never skied and have minimal training.
I can't imagine there is an Epic resort that needs more sprucing up from the lift motors to the "lodge" itself. The resorts snowmobiles range from vintage to run-down.
Also PP is strange in some of it's operating mannerisms, for example there's a bar tucked away in a corner that's hardly ever open in a town with very few restaurant/bar options. You'd think PP would keep those open year round but they do not.
There is opportunity at PP. With a small land purchase and some landscape/bridges over the creek at bottom the whole place could be run off a single strategically placed six seat detachable lift.
