3″ of New Snow is a Great Way to Start a Thursday!

We did receive 3″ of new snow from this storm, so it should be an amazing day here on the mountain.  Remember, we have thrown any idea of closing out the window and plan to ski and ride daily each day until 4:30pm until we say we aren’t!

Today we are skiing from the top of the mountain down on 6 slopes, one advanced, two intermediate and three beginner on a base of 38-58″ and 3″ of new snow on a machine worked surface.   We have two aerial and one conveyor lift operating.  We offer one session of skiing, day skiing from 9am-4:30pm with a morning or afternoon half day rate also available.

Remember, we are on our late season operating hours and are open daily from 9am until 4:30pm on Monday through Friday and 8:30am – 4:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Did you know if you have a current season pass to any other area you get $10 off the price of your lift ticket or season pass at Cataloochee? You must present your pass to receive your discount.  And, don’t forget if you buy a lift ticket and decide you like us well enough to come back and visit?  We can upgrade your ticket to a season pass and you just pay the difference.  We are now on our second tier of pass pricing.

Please remember to check conditions daily before you come as hours of operating and slopes conditions can change.
