Snow Report                                     
We did receive 6” of snow during this storm  and we will continue to make snow throughout the night on Thursday night.  On Friday, we will be skiing from the top of the quad down  with three aerial lifts operating and two conveyor lifts operating.  

On Friday we will offer three sessions of skiing, day skiing from 8:30am until 4:30pm, twilight skiing from 1pm until 10pm and night skiing from 6pm until 10pm with a morning or afternoon half day rate also available.  Holiday rates are in effect.  Guests unhappy with conditions will be offered our One Run Refund and given a FULL refund after making one run or within the first 45 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 be  be operating from 10am until 10pm with 1 hour 45 minute sessions available beginning at 10, 12, 2, 4 6, and 8pm. Cost for tubing is $25 and you must be 42" to ride alone.  There is no two person tubing at Tube World.  

Our rental shop in Maggie Valley, Cataloochee Ski & Sports, is open daily.  Be sure to stop there for your discounted rentals and all accessories you might need prior to your day on the slopes.

We are on our daily early season operating schedule of 9am until 4:30pm Monday through Friday and 8:30am – 4:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays through December 14 with the exception of the continued holiday period of today and Saturday when we will operate from 8:30am until 10pm returning to day skiing on Sunday from 8:30 am until 4:30pm.  Holiday rates are in effect through Sunday, November 30.  

Don’t forget that if you have not made up your mind to purchase your season pass at Cataloochee, the lift ticket you purchase today can be upgraded to a season pass…using the cost of your lift ticket you have already purchased against the price of your pass.  You just pay the difference!

Also, don’t forget if you have a current season pass to any other area, you can bring your pass to Cataloochee and receive $10 off your day’s lift ticket.  

We remind you to be aware of changing ski conditions and use caution.  Natural and manmade obstacles exist and snowmaking and grooming activities are routinely in progress. Please use control and ski or ride only on designated slopes and trails.
