Looking forward to November 1!
 Cataloochee Ski Area

  What's New

Join the Race to Beat Brain Cancer, Saturday, August 1 @ Cataloochee Ranch
Richard's Run is named in memory of Richard Coker, a beloved member of the Cataloochee Ranch family, who lost his battle with brain cancer in December 2013 at the age of 55. The 2nd annual 5K run, across the mile-high meadows and along the forest trails of Cataloochee Ranch, will have your pulse racing right along with your feet.  Run begins at 10 am on Saturday, August 1, and will cross Ranch grounds near the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with Hemphill Bald, one of Richard’s favorite places, as a dramatic backdrop. There will be awards for the winners, needless to say. And music by the Darren Nicholson Band. But brain cancer will be the only real loser. Click here for more information.

Getting Here
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.
