Cataloochee Ski Area is conveniently located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, four miles off U.S. 19 above Maggie Valley, N.C.
Even when the winter weather seems too warm for skiing, Cataloochee's mile-high elevation provides fine conditions for making and keeping snow.
Many families have learned to ski on these gentle slopes. Cataloochee's PSIA-registered ski school teaches basics to novices or new techniques to experts. Telemark and snowboard instruction is also offered.
