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.

One Planet. One Pass. Cataloochee Joins Monarch Pass!
Located in south-central Colorado, only 2.5 hours from Denver or Colorado Springs, Monarch Mountain serves up an average of 350” of all natural snow per season. Families love Monarch because of the friendly staff, ease of parking, and how the slopes funnel everyone back to the same base area. Experts love the challenging hike-to terrain of Mirkwood Basin and the Monarch Snowcat Tours. And remember, ALL Cataloochee season pass holders receive one FREE day of skiing or riding with no black out days! Plus all Monarch One Planet. One Pass passholders receive one FREE day of skiing or riding with no black out days at Cataloochee in return! Visit for more details! Even more reason to become a CAT (or Monarch Mountain) season pass!
