Are You Ready for Next Season?
The ski area is closed after a wonderful run for the 2014/2015 season spanning five months and 141 days of Great Skiing and Riding in the Great Smokies, marking our second longest season on record. Tube World located in Maggie Valley across from Ghost Town in the Sky is also closed for the season. We want to thank each of you who have supported us by riding, skiing or tubing with us this season and we look forward to seeing each of you again next season. Mark your calendars and come fall, anytime there is a snowmaking opportunity count on Cataloochee to begin snowmaking for the 2015/2016 season.
Our shop in Maggie Valley, Cataloochee Ski & Sports will be reopening May 18 for the summer season and will have information on hiking, biking, and other summer and winter activities as well as summer and winter gear to make your trip complete. We will have more information as we get closer to May.

Google Maps Provide the Only Accurate Driving Directions to Ski Area
After many years of directing Cataloochee skiers and snowboarders over sometimes impassable roads, Google Maps provides the only accurate driving directions to the ski area from your point of origin. Google Maps is the ONLY mapping service to provide accurate directions at the current time. Please remember to use this service when planning your trip to the area. GPS devices and other mapping services provide directions over a limited access, unmaintained dirt road.
