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.

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.
