The whole MTN was open, which was great. First time I was able to go to the very top. I loved it. The top did not have as much coverage as the bottom, but was still a very very nice ride down.
I thought that it would be packe with people that morning 1/17/09 but it was not. Having all the lifts open was a plus. The wait was not too bad, since most people who vist Cataloochee stay on the green lifts.
Better line control would make this resort even better.
For man made snow, this place is great, coming from Atlanta, it's a perfect to get your snow fix in a one day trip.
I visited Cataloochee about 4times this year, and have yet to have a bad time. I will be going back again!!
