Description

Cataloochee Ski Area, located high in the mountains of Western North Carolina is the home of “Great Skiing in the Great Smokies!” One of the first areas in the region to open each season, Cataloochee is committed to making your skiing and snowboarding experience the best it can be by utilizing one of the most advanced snowmaking systems in the Southeast. With 100% snowmaking on 18 slopes and trails including the Cat Cage Terrain Park, 3 aerial lifts and 2 moving carpet lifts, and over 4,000 sets of snowsports equipment, the Cataloochee experience offers something for everyone.

We feature a PSIA and AASI member Ski and Snowboard School with instruction for all ages and abilities, and offer our HEAD Kids Adventure Center with ski and snowboard programs for kids ages 4-12 and a variety of terrain for beginners to experts alike. With our Terrain-Based Learning programs, you will learn quicker and easier than ever before.

Group and corporate meeting space is available. In the lodge, a fireplace and cozy atmosphere await you, along with our on-mountain restaurant offering three a la carte meals daily and a lounge with full ABC permits. Round out your day on the mountain with a visit to The Shop at Cataloochee, featuring signature gifts and apparel.

Down the hill in Maggie Valley, we offer Tube World, a snowtubing hill with up to 12 lanes of tubing fun! Cataloochee Ski and Sports, our rental and clothing shop in Maggie Valley, allows you to rent your ski or snowboard equipment at a discounted rate, purchase your lift ticket and get everything you need for a day on the slopes. Bib, jacket and helmet rentals are also available at the shop. Best of all, you can pick up everything you need the night before and be ready to go straight to the snow on the day you plan to ski or snowboard with no waiting! The sports shop sells goggles, gloves, hats, sunglasses and other accessories to complete your visit.

Cataloochee is located only 35 miles west of Asheville, 3 hours north of Atlanta, and 1 ¾ hours from the Gatlinburg, Greenville/Spartanburg and Knoxville areas, with easy four lane access from each. We have great midweek packages, including our Drive, Slide and Stay, and Kids Ski and Stay FREE programs, making economical winter fun closer than you think!
