A somewhat small ski area with just a few runs, Cataloochee is the perfect place to learn or to simply refresh your skills before venturing to larger ski resorts whether in North Carolina or out West. It's quite affordable and is conveniently located just under an hour from Ashville.

Not the fanciest place, but they certainly make the snow whenever they get a chance!
