Welcome, Groups!
There are several things you can count on when you bring a group to Cataloochee. Small town hospitality, a helping hand at every stage of your visit, excellent facilities, and of course, great skiing and snowboarding. We have some of the best group deals in the Southeast and special rates for all sessions, night or day. Our group sales department is available year-round to help you plan the perfect group outing. We can also assist you in finding accommodations close to the slopes for your group. For more information call 1-800-768-0285 and ask for Group Sales.

NEW! No Deposit Required & Same Pricing for Group Skis or Snowboards!
New this season, we no longer require a deposit to reserve your group at Cataloochee. 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. Also, all group skis and snowboards are the same price, anytime. No upgrade fee!  Reservations for groups are still required at least one week in advance of your visit. 

REMEMBER...a group of fifteen or more skiers qualifies for discounts on lift tickets and rental equipment as well as free lessons for all beginning skiers. In addition, for every fifteen paid skiers, your group will receive one FREE lift ticket and one FREE set of rental equipment.

Organize, Plan, and Reserve
Reservations are required for groups of 15 or more at least one week 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.

Reserve Rental Equipment
Cataloochee stocks a large rental inventory of ski and snowboard equipment, but only a limited number of those sets are available for group reservations. Equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis – yet another reason to make your group reservations early. After you make your initial reservation, we will send you rental equipment forms for your group to complete and bring with them at the time of your visit. These forms should be completed with accurate information for height, weight, age and skier ability level for each individual in your group.

Free Beginner’s Lessons With Pre-Reserved Group Rentals
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 7 or older who rents ski equipment receives a free one and a half hour beginner’s lesson. Experienced skiers and boarders in your group can take advantage of a discounted Ski School rate. Ask our group sales department for details and pricing.
