Grab your sunscreen and head out to the slopes! The Cataloochee Ski Area is open, and it’s prime skiing time. It’s a great socially-distant activity that gets you out of your routine and into the great outdoors. Better yet—it’s less than 30 minutes from the Oak Hill on Love Lane Bed & Breakfast here in Waynesville, NC. Read on for all you need to know about one of the most southern ski resorts in the east and start making plans for a getaway to our cozy inn!

The Cataloochee Ski Area has 18 skiing and snowboarding slopes and trails that use one of the most advanced snowmaking systems in the region. This means that the ski season can last from November all the way through March. It’s a great place for all skill levels to enjoy, and it’s especially good for beginners. They offer classes and private lessons so you can become an expert in no time! They also provide rental equipment, so there’s no need to haul anything back and forth.

In addition to their 18 slopes and trails, Cataloochee Ski Area has an area called the Cat Cage Terrain Park. Here you’ll find:

  • 10’ Double Bar Flat Rail
  • 10’ Single Bar Flat Rail

For those looking for an easier entry into the snowy slopes, try out Tube World, just four miles from the ski area where you can take a magic carpet lift up and then ride down on their specially designed inner tubes. Sessions are one hour and 45 minutes long and run every two hours.
