Lots of natural snow after big snowfall, quick lift lines
limited terrain, crowded with many amateurish patrons
Went to Cataloochee for a day trip a few weeks ago. Had a beautiful day and enjoyed getting a few runs in. Having been to Beech and Wolf Ridge, it is not as varied or fun as those mountains but does maintain two or three runs which allow for a bit of challenge. Fun if your in the area but I would recommend somewhere else like Sugar, Beech, or Wolf Ridge if you want better overall skiing. Friendly staff but lots of newbs.
