Ski Areas > US Mid Atlantic > Cataloochee, North Carolina




  This is my favorite place to ski around this area. I know it's  not the biggest but the people are so nice I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Says Nes.

Cataloochee is great, it doesn't snow much but they have plenty of snow machines. Says Jim.

The 4 lifts here are in great condition. This is a cozy ski mountain featuring a roughly average drop from top to bottom compared to other mid Atlantic ski resorts. Cataloochee has a much lower than
    average proportion of tough trails and a much higher than average proportion of blue and green trails. This ski mountain has a rather modest mixture of trails and few lifts. The 3 feet of white snow that fall here every year is not
incredibly high, but it's ok. With a 740 foot elevation difference it's not the highest hill there is, but Cataloochee has so many other great attributes. You have to go 91 miles to get to a ski resort featuring a fuller-size drop from top to bottom. This ski hill gets lighter snowfall than the local average every winter. Lodgings are on hand in the neighborhood of the bottom of the hill, but you'd better reserve before you go in view of the fact that these  
rooms fill up quick. The skiable land being 25 acres, it's petite enough to get to know all your fellow people. This ski hill has 10 runs, and they are great to ski on. Cataloochee is a family friendly ski area with scores of blue and green runs. In wintertime the Great Smoky Mountains is an enormously pleasant place if you get pleasure from skiing or snowboarding. Loads of skiers from Newport like to ski here. A perfect workout and an opportunity to spend some time in the outdoors are perfect causes to come. The highlands of North Carolina in winter are a pleasant place for skiing or snowboarding. Skiing and snowboarding here in North Carolina is a magnificent thing to do during the ski season. The marvelous mountain view of North Carolina and tremendous slopes are guaranteed to keep you returning for more. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, there are loads of perfect ski resorts for that in the neighborhood. The Great Smoky Mountains and its highlands make for a pleasant vista.
