Snow Report Update
Today we will be skiing from the top of the quad down on nine out of seventeen slopes with two aerial lifts and one conveyor lift operating. The park crew has a brand new rail set up for you to ride on Upper Over Easy and accessed by the Easy Way Triple Chairlift.
We will offer one session of skiing, day skiing from 9am until 4:30pm, with a morning or afternoon half day rate also available. Guests unhappy with conditions will be given a FULL refund after making one run within the first 30 minutes. No refunds will be given after that.
Tube World located in Maggie Valley, across from Ghost Town in the Sky, four miles from the ski area will reopen on Saturday, December 7 at 10am. Our new rental shop, Cataloochee Ski & Sports, also located in Maggie Valley, is also open today. Be sure to stop there for your discounted rentals and all accessories you might need prior to your day on the slopes.
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.
Presenting a New Mountain Memoir
Born a city girl, Jane Alexander tells her story of being tugged from a vibrant metropolitan life to a primitive woods camp in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. There she spent six weeks every summer with her husband Tom and their two small children building an old-timey log cabin with proper dovetail joints, mud chinking and hand-built stairs. With no roof over her head, Jane eventually got into the rhythm of rustic living and the wilderness became part of her soul. Jane includes tales by friends and family members to recreate the authenticity and beauty of Tom's Stand and the mountains that surround the old log home.

Make This YOUR Year...
Learn to Ski & Snowboard!
Precious moments on snow are "specialties of life" for skiers and snowboarders. Why so special? How many recreational activities can you do outside in the cool, crisp air of winter? How many provide times when family and friends can get together to share the experience? How many can be learned at a VERY early age and practiced throughout life? How many teach us to love snow and not fear it? Skiing and snowboarding let us experience the freedom of gliding down a mountain, the chance to see pristine landscapes, opportunities to meet new and different friends from everywhere. Visit www.skiandsnowboardmonth.org for more information on learning to ski or snowboard this season, and remember, Cataloochee offers FREE beginner lessons every non-holiday Monday through Thursday for those persons renting equipment at the area. It doesn't just get any better than that! And...stay tuned for more information on how to participate in Cataloochee's Learn to Ski & Snowboard packages for January, 2014.
