Snow Report                                     

Cataloochee is closed after a wonderful run for the 2014/2015 season spanning five months and 141 days of Great Skiing and Riding in the Great Smokies, marking our second longest season on record.  Tube World located in Maggie Valley across from Ghost Town in the Sky is also closed for the season.  We want to thank each of you who have supported us by riding, skiing or tubing with us this season and we look forward to seeing each of you again next season.  Mark your calendars and come fall, anytime there is a snowmaking opportunity count on Cataloochee to begin snowmaking for the 2015/2016 season.

Join us this spring for the 3rd Annual Smoky Mountain Oyster & Seafood Festival, on Saturday, April 18, 2015.  The festival, held at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds in the heart of Maggie Valley, North Carolina, promises to have some of the best oysters around, and served just about any way you like them whether that's steamed, raw, or fried.  Plus fried or steamed shrimp, shrimp and grits and last year's winner, the low country boil.    New for the event this year will be tethered hot air balloon ridesprovided by Asheville Hot Air Balloons!  Al Coffee & Da Grind and Mile High Band will be playing their tunes and the folks from Par-T-Perfect Asheville will be on hand with face painting and balloons, corn hole games and a 9 hole mini-golf course.  Oysters and seafood will again be from Mobjack Bay Seafood and Ward Oyster Company, served up as always by the great folks from J. Arthur's Restaurant. We'll have all of your favorite craft beverages as well as kettle corn, bbq and other food items from some of your favorite festival vendors.  Mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 18, from 11:00 am-5:00 pm and come join us!
