Step 1: Make a Reservation
Reservations are required for groups of 15 or more at least two weeks in advance to ensure space and availability, especially during holidays and peak weekends when we limit group sales. It’s a good idea to organize your group early, plan your dates, and reserve as soon as possible. The group sales department is open year-round for your convenience – it’s never too early to start planning your winter adventure at Cataloochee.
Step 2: Your Group Leader Information Arrives
After making your reservation, we will email you a complete digital group leader packet with all the information you need to bring your group to Cataloochee. This packet includes a group leader checklist, safety & skier responsibility information, skier & snowboarder checklist, lesson information and rental forms for your group to fill out prior to your arrival.
If you are unable to provide your group’s rental information in advance, we suggest you arrive at the area early to fill out your required rental information.
Step 3: Take a Lesson
Helping first-time skiers get the most out of their visit to Cataloochee is our specialty. That’s why each member of your group age 8 or older who rents ski equipment is eligible for discounts on beginner lessons. Class lesson pricing for groups of 15 or more is $12 per person and each person will receive 1 1/2 hours of instruction. Experienced skiers and boarders in your group can take advantage of this $15 Ski School rate as well for any upper level lessons needed.
We look forward to having your group join us at Cataloochee this season. If you have any questions for us before, during and even after your trip, don’t hesitate to call the Group Sales Office at 828.926.0285, ext. 7318.
