Organize Your Group, Plan Your Trip, Give Us a Call!
Have a group of 15 or more?  Contact our group sales department to book your reservation today and save big on winter skiing, snowboarding, lessons and tubing.  Experience small town hospitality and a helping hand at every stage of your visit.  We can also assist you in finding accommodations close to the slopes for your group.

Your fees will be determined after you arrive and must be paid with in one lump sum. We accept MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. The group discount is not available for groups paying on an individual basis. All group skis and snowboards are the same price, anytime.
In addition, for every fifteen paid skiers, your group receives one complimentary chaperone lift and rental package. Groups also receive discounted ski school lessons for $10 per person. For more information call 1-800-768-0285 and ask for Group Sales.

Step 1:  Make a Reservation
Reservations are required for groups of 15 or more at least two weeks in advance to ensure space and availability, especially during holidays and peak weekends when we limit group sales. It's a good idea to organize your group early, plan your dates, and reserve as soon as possible. The group sales department is open year-round for your convenience – it's never too early to start planning your winter adventure at Cataloochee.

Step 2:  Rent Your Equipment
There are two options for your group when renting equipment at Cataloochee, preset equipment and renting when you arrive.     
Option 1 / Preset Group Equipment: With preset group equipment, all skier information is provided prior to arrival and boots and equipment are pulled and set aside for each member of your group.  Each group members will fill out the highlighted portions of our rental form and you will return them to the group sales department within a week of your arrival. 
Option 2 / Rent Upon Arrival: If you are unable to provide your group's rental information in advance, we suggest you arrive at the area early to fill out your required rental information and get your equipment. 

Step 3:  Take a Lesson
Helping first-time skiers get the most out of their visit to Cataloochee is our specialty. That's why each member of your group age 6 or older who rents ski equipment is eligible for discounts on beginner lessons. Class lesson pricing for groups of 15 or more is $10 per person and each person will receive 1 3/4 hours of instruction. Experienced skiers and boarders in your group can take advantage of this $10 Ski School rate as well for any upper level lessons needed.
