TKD tells us:
  {-lI'} <in progress>

  This suffix is similar to {-taH} <continuous> in that it indicates
that an activity is ongoing. Unlike {-taH,} however, {-lI'} implies
that the activity has a known goal or a definite stopping point.
In other words, it suggests that progress is being made toward
that goal.

So it seems a bit odd to say SISlI' and peDlI'.   Perhaps at a ski slope where 
they have snow making machines it is possible to peDlI'.
