Happy Thursday! Today we are skiing and riding on 14 trails with a base of 51-81″ and a groomed surface. Upper Omigosh slope will be closed to complete our tree removal project this morning, but the double chair to the top will be running to service Upper Snowbird trail. We also have some terrain features set up on Turkey Trot as well.
The Cataloochee Challenge Adult Recreational Race League begins tonight. Open to everyone 18 and over, participants race against the clock on a modified GS course for the better of two runs. Top three challengers in both men and women’s age divisions win cool stuff. Registration is open from 6pm – 7:30pm and racing begins at 7pm. Cost is $15 for race only or $35 for race and night lift ticket.
Today we offer three sessions of skiing and riding: day skiing from 9am-4:30pm, twilight skiing from 1pm-10pm and night skiing from 6pm until 10pm with a morning or afternoon half day rate available.
Tube World, located in Maggie Valley across from Ghost Town in the Sky, four miles from the ski area will be tubing from 4pm until 10pm with 1 hour 45 minute sessions beginning at 4, 6, and 8pm. Cost for tubing is $25 and you must be 42″ tall to ride alone. There is no two person tubing at Tube World. Wee Bowl, our children’s snowplay area for kids under the 42″ height requirement will be open and operating on the same schedule as Tube World. Cost is $5 for Wee Bowl. Reservations for Tube World are recommended and must be made online 24 hours in advance. If you do not have a reservation, tubing is on a first come, first served basis and if the session you wish to tube is sold out you may purchase a session for later in the day.
Don’t forget in celebration of National Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month, Cataloochee is offering a special $59 beginning lesson, lift and rental package for persons age 8 and above. Offer is valid any non-holiday Monday through Friday for the month of January and it’s only available by purchasing online.
