Cataloochee Ski Area Opened today!

Cataloochee Ski Area opened this morning thanks to a cold wave in the weather and and a lot of overnight snow "making". Once again the first NC Slopes to open Cataloochee  invested over $1.2 million dollars into capital improvements over the summer months including the purchase of 2 new Pisten Bully snow groomers, installing 13,000 ft. of snowmaking pipeline, replacing all adult boots and over 700 adult skis in the main rental shop and replacing 24 snowmaking guns with new efficient automatic fanguns. A new efficient six stick automatic snowgun system was installed on Alley Cat, the racing trail. In addition,a new second terrain park in the Turkey Trot area has been added with four new snow guns.

The 49th season at Cataloochee offers16 exciting slopes and trails in a friendly and helpful atmosphere that makes the Cataloochee experience truly unique. This combination of exciting and challenging terrain, breathtaking vistas and soaring freedom are rarely found on the East Coast. Cataloochee Ski Area is located mile high in the mountains of Western North Carolina at Maggie Valley MC.
